iPhone 4 is coming – are you getting one??

So, today at WWDC10, Steve Jobs talked about the iPhone 4 and how Apple has focused a lot of its efforts on video calling.

iPhone 4 will be able to make “Face Time” video calls to other iPhone 4 users through two cameras mounted on either side of the handset – sounds clever enough!

However, there is a catch!  The feature will only be available over a Wi-Fi internet connection (this year at least), whilst the company tries to form some sort of arrangement with wireless carriers to make it work well enough over 3G.

Jobs also said that the iPhone 4 is 24% thinner than its predecessor (The 3GS) and will have a much sharper display, coupled with longer battery life.  The updated device will also house a gyroscope which, when combined with its accelerometer, will give it six-axis motion sensing, much like a video game controller.

It will also have a better camera (5MP) and will be able to shoot video in HD – nice! 

iPhone 4 will also correct one of the iPhone’s main criticisms… its ability to multitask.  It will be able to run multiple apps at the same time, so users will no longer have to close one application down, just so they can open another.

Release Dates

The new handset will be available in five countries (not including Canada) as of June 24, and will ship across to 18 more in July.  It won’t be available in Canada until late July – although this may change!

So, will you be the first to get an iPhone 4?  Or will you wait?
