iPhone 4 Hands-on with “FaceTime” Video Calling Feature
iPhone 4 was announced at WWDC 10 by Steve Jobs in front of packed audience at Moscone Center, San Francisco. This release without a doubt is a significant jump in the iPhone line-up since its introduction back in 2007.
Folks at Engadget were lucky enough to have got hands-on demo of the device which they unsurprisingly found to be incredibly sexy. Their first impression of the phone in question was:
As we said, it’s shockingly thin.
The screen is truly outrageous — you basically cannot see pixels on it. We’re not being hyperbolic when we say it’s easily the best looking mobile phone screen we’ve ever laid eyes on.
The build quality is really solid. The home button feels much snappier, and on the whole it just feels like a tightly-packed device, but it’s not heavy.
The side buttons are really nice and clicky.
iOS 4 is very familiar — there’s not a lot added to fit and finish.
The general speed of the whole OS is way snappier. The camera app in particular is noticeably faster — shots get snapped in an instant.
and here is the video demo, showing “FaceTime” video demo in action!
iPhone 4 will be available in white and black, with price tag of $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for 32GB. It will go on sale on June 24th. At the same time, the 3GS will be dropped to $99 and the 3G will disappear completely. Pre-orders will start from 15 this month, with 5 countries at launch (US, France, Germany, UK, Japan) and in 18 more in July. [via Engadget]
