Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs was very justified in saying that the new iPhone that he launched at the WWDC was the biggest step that Apple had taken in the past decade after releasing the first iPhone. The new device, from the Apple developing team’s kitty, seems to possess all the ingredients for making it big in the mobile phone market. It happened the last time round, that the introduction of a version of iPhone marked the end of the previous version iPhone from the market. Will history repeat itself, or will the iPhone 3 pose a good competition, let us take a closer look.
The iPhone 4, with the ceremony and attention that it is getting right now, certainly seems to be sure of knocking its elder bro out of the market, but on taking a closer look we might reach a conclusion for ourselves. The iPhone 4 is 24% slimmer than the previous version and carries a trendier and cooler look. The iPhone supports the Retina Display of a resolution of 960 x 640 pixels and a depth of 326 PPI, a feature that betters the previous versions by almost 4 times. The iPhone 4 supports two cameras, unlike one in the previous versions of the iPhone. Moreover, the back camera is of the iPhone 4 is of 5 MP, much more than the 3MP that was available on the previous versions of the camera. The support for HD video recording, tap-to-focus and Led flash can also be counted as the advancements in technology that iPhone 4 has to offer.
The camera at the front is a VGA and can be used for the Facetime video chatting facility something that is again a new addition to the iPhone 4. Although, the Facetime facility works only when the iPhone 4 is inside a Wi-Fi network and can be used to make a video call from an iPhone 4 user to iPhone 4 user, it is a new facility nonetheless.
The new iPhone 4 supports the 802.11n Wi-Fi kit unlike the previous version that supported the 802.11/b/g kits only. This is the most advanced Wi-Fi technology available and none of the previous versions even come close to this one. This one is going to be a real blast-away for the previous versions, this version of the iPhone supports multi-tasking a feature that is not available in any of the previous iPhones and the iPhone 4 again reigns supreme. The motion- detectors that have been incorporated in the iPhone 4 are no match for any of the previous iPhones especially the Gyro, which along with the accelerometer provides motion detection in six dimensions which makes this device much more delightful to play real time motion games than the previous versions of iPhone.
If after seeing all the above facts you are looking at your iPhone and feeling inferior, don’t worry, Steve Jobs has not left you disappointed! Yes from the 21st of June, Apple will release an update that can be used to upgrade the previous versions of iPhone OS to the iOS 4. The update will be free and will support all the features that the older version phones have.
Seems like Apple itself does not want the era of 3 to go away, for the era of 4 to come!!
