iPhone 4 announced

Looks really cool, still debating between this an EVO 4G. Gotta wait for some more reviews from hands on with the iPhone 4.

New Case Design:
Integrated antenna
Glass front and back
Thinnest smartphone yet
5mp camera with backlight illuminated sensor for better low light
720p Video recording
iMovies editing

New display:
960 × 640 called Retina Display
4x resolution of iPhone 3GS
800:1 contrast ratio

A4 Chip:
Better battery life, along with bigger battery

Gyroscope:
3 axis gyroscope
combined with accelerometer, makes for 6 axis

IMO the Droid Incredible is going to be the biggest competition for the Iphone. I have the Eris right now and love it. . the Incredible is tons faster than the eris and it is supporting a 8.1mp camera.

We don't get good service up here for sprint or AT&T...Maybe verizon will seriously reinvest in their network, come up with 5G (or something lol) and secure the iphone5 in the future..just a hope.

(just ordered the Incredible)- should be here in a couple of weeks

LOL @ the guy who yelled "VERIZON!"

But seriously. Do it Apple. I refuse to switch to freaking AT&T.

It's sad, but I switched from Verizon to AT&T JUST for this phone. I love mine to death, even though about 30 percent of my calls drop. Who uses a cell phone to call people anymore anyway?

Ive been with AT&T/Cingular for 5 Years, had every iPhone so far, and I honestly don't think I have ever had a dropped call.

Me. I don't even have texting. I use the data plan on my Samsung Omnia to send emails as text messages when I absolutely have to. If there's no reason to text then I call them.

I'm stoked!!

Everyone in the office says they don't have them because of dropped calls on AT&T. Who actually makes phone calls anymore, that's so 1996!!

If you dial *639# on you're iPhone you can find out right now if you're eligible for an upgrade or it will give you the date you are.

AT&T is dropping their unlimited data plan. Android is the only way...

FTS.

I pay $30 extra a month for unlimited data with Verizon. My dad's employee discount from GM basically erases that charge off our bill anyways.

AT&T can charge what they want. They'll get it. Why? Because they have the iPhone and it rules!!

Your service for AT&T should improve in Grand Forks...since they bought Alltel (former Western Wireless) and will overlay that network.

At least that won't affect me since I already have the unlimited and will be "grandfathered" in.

"If you already have an unlimited smartphone data plan and you renew your contract after June 7, as long as you don't change your plan, you can keep on keepin' on with your unlimited plan. In other words, you can get a new smartphone, but keep the same plan—then you're grandfathered in with unlimited data."

I love the 200,000+ size of the app store, but I can't see paying almost double to switch to AT&T. I can get the EVO 4G soon (on a Sprint Employee plan) and play around $80 for 2 phones. Or I can switch to AT&T and pay $160+ for 2 iPhone 4s. Plus, the iPhone may get tethering but the data plan is not unlimited and its not a mobile hotspot like the EVO 4G and other Android 2.2 phones can do.

+1 - 32GB iPhone 4 FTW. Also, now that the iPhone has a front camera it makes me want to wait for iPad 2.0 which will surely have one...

I saw that, but they still haven't began the cross-over and it will probably be a whole year until it is finished. We will see how the smartphone battle plays out.

I heard September, but we've been hearing rumors about the Verizon iPhone for years now.

Hmm well the EVO already has a better camera and cheaper data plans... Not sure how the processors stack up against each other, but the EVO will be able to do flash whilst Steve and Apple continue to throw a tizzy fit every time someone mentions Adobe in their presence...
