Apple shows off its new 4th gen iPhone

Hey wow! What’s that? It’s a new Apple iPhone! Alright, so what does this thing have to offer? Well, it has a higher resolution which boasts more pixels on screen at once (It would have been nice to have an OLED screen like the Zune HD). It has a better contrast ratio, faster processor, longer battery life, great camera, etc. Pretty much what Gizmodo reported.

So, what is the price of this thing? Well, it priced at a modest $199 for the 16GB and a modest $299.99 for the 32GB version for new users looking to upgrade. However, “If you are an existing iPhone user, the early upgrade will cost you $399 and $499. Without contract, the iPhone 4 is $499 and $599.” Ouch. Additionally, I couldn’t help but think about if there will be a camera for the 4th gen iPOD touch as well. It would only be a logical step in the right direction, no?

Here are the full specs of the device:

-Apple A4 processor
-Supports new iPhone OS, “iOS 4” w/ multitasking
-800:1 Contrast ratio
-640×960 display
-5MP camera: LED flash, 5x digital zoom, one-click sharing, and 720p (30fps) HD video capture
-High resolution rear camera with flash
-Front-facing camera for video conferencing
-MicroSIM support
-802.11n: 3G download/upload speeds of 7.2Mbps and 5.8Mbps
-Battery life: 7 hours talk, 6 hours 3G, 10 hours Wi-Fi, 10 hours video, 40 hours music, and 300 hours of standby

One interesting side note worth mentioning is that during the conference Steeve Jobs had trouble connecting the next gen iPhone, at which point someone yelled out, “Try Verizon!”
