Welcome to What’s Good Blog’s Apple iPhone 4g coverage. In this post, we will be updating up to the minute announcements coming from Steve Jobs’ keynote address at Apple’s World Wide Developers’ Conference. Click below to read more about the Apple iPhone 4g.
And here we go, Steve Jobs has entered the building.
Boring….Steve Jobs is starting off with iPad information. Who cares?! We all want to hear about the iPhone! Jobs is teasing the crowd with ambiguous language, praising it’s slimness and beauty.
Jobs is blabbering about how the iPad has sold more than 2 million units in under 2 months. If Steve Jobs were to defecate onto a piece of paper, and place an Apple logo on it, people would purchase it.
Bottom line about the iPad, it’s sold a lot of Apps and Books. Apple has made a ton of money. Unusual? Nope.
iPads can now read PDFs.
Jobs is now talking about HTML5. Trying to save his own ass after bad mouthing the beloved Flash media player.
He’s mentioning that it is completely open and uncontrolled.
Steve Jobs is now discussing the App store. 95 percent of Apps are approved within 7 days. I’m sure that’s some sort of skewed statistic. Jobs has people up on stage now talking about specific apps, such as the Netflix app and Guitar Hero app from Activision.
Jobs is back on stage.
Jobs cites that 70% of revenues from the App store goes to the developers themselves. Still, Apple’s taking a nice cut for themselves.
Jobs is naturally badmouthing Android and its market share.
Alright, it’s go time. Steve is now talking about the iPhone and its history!
Jobs just announced the Apple iPhone 4!!!!!!! He cracks a joke referring to the Gizmodo incident.
The iPhone 4 will be 9.3mm thick. Jobs claims that it is the thinnest smartphone ever. The device comes equipped a with front-facing camera, and a camera with LED flash in the back. On the bottom is the mic, 30 pin connector, and speaker. On the top, there’s a second mic, a hold button, and a noise cancellation button.
Steve is now talking more about the aesthetic beauty behind the new iPhone 4. The device has a retina display, meaning that the density of pixels in a given space is much larger on this device than others.
Jobs mentions that the display sports such a high resolution that if it were any higher, images would begin to curve because the human eye is incapable of picking up any higher resolution. Interesting….
Wow, Steve Jobs is having trouble getting a signal in the conference room. Talk about karma!
This would be a great time to announce a Verizon iPhone, as unlikely as that probably is.
The iPhone 4 will have the A4 processor, the same type found in the iPad.
The iPhone 4 supposedly has a much larger battery as well, capable of 7 hours of talk time, 6 hours of 3G internet surfing, 10 hours of wifi browsing, and 300 hours of standby-time.
The new iPhone is available with up to 32gb of memory. Jobs just announced a gyroscope inside of the iPhone as well. Interesting.
The iPhone 4′s new camera specs: 5 megapixels, 5X digital zoom, tap to focus, and LED flash built in. The camera also is capable of shooting HD video (720p at 30fps). That’s pretty sick. All kinds of on-phone options/effects/transitions/etc. Geotagging data will be embedded into photos as well. A iPhone OS version of iMovie will be available in the App store for $4.99
Jobs is moving on to discuss iPhone OS 4.0, which Apple is now renaming iOS 4, due to its use on many of Apple’s products, not just the iPhone. Jobs is now demoing iOS 4′s multitasking abilities.
Jobs is now speaking about how iBooks (and all of your books’ notes, place holders, etc) will wirelessly sync between all of your iOS 4 devices. This is only really helpful if you own an iPad along with your iPod touch, iPhone, etc.
Jobs is now discussing Apple’s new iAd program. Steve says that the purpose behind iAds is to allow developers to continue to make low cost / free apps by offsetting their costs with advertisements.
Apple sells and hosts the advertisements. All developers need to do is tell Apple where they want the ads in the app. Developers get paid 60 percent of the revenue generated from the advertisements.
The crowd seems to be enjoying Jobs and the new iPhone.
Jobs says he’s got one more thing to say….
Jobs shows off video-calling. Damnit. I thought we might hear something about a Verizon iPhone. Oh well.
The video-chat program is called FaceTime and it requires a wifi signal. Makes sense considering that AT&T’s bandwidth has already been eaten up by the iPhone. Video conferencing would just decimate it.
The iPhone 4 will be available in 2 colors, either black or white. $199 for 16gb and $299 for 32gb. AT&T and Apple also worked out a deal. If your AT&T contract expires anytime in 2010, AT&T will allow you to upgrade now if you renew your contract.
The iPhone 4 will be on sale starting June 24, 2010.
Multitasking utilizing iOS 4 will be available for all devices except the iPhone 3g and first generation iPod Touch. We already knew this though. Good news though, iOS 4 will be available for free!
That’s all for now folks. Look back later for more information on Apple’s new iPhone 4.
