New Iphone 4G…Lost and Found!!

So the big tech rumour of the day is the discovery of the new IPHONE 4G in a bar somewhere in California. The good peeps at Gizmodo got the low down…here it is!

Apparently, an Apple Software Engineer, Gray Powell had lost the new iPhone he was testing which was disguised as a iPhone 3GS at a local bar up in Redwood City, CA. Now it’s in the hands of the folks over at Gizmodo. It probably was intentional since Apple did not take any action or trip off the fact that they posted tons of photos of it on their website.

Looks good, has similarities with the iPad when it comes to the trim area. Good thing I held off on the 3GS, once this comes out, perfect timing for an upgrade.

What’s new

• Front-facing video chat camera
• Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
• Camera flash
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It’s unclear if it’s the 960×640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the “Connect to iTunes” screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
• Split buttons for volume
• Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

What’s changed

• The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
• An aluminum border going completely around the outside
• Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
• Everything is more squared off
• 3 grams heavier
• 16% Larger battery
• Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery

So now I have to buy an Ipad and a new Iphone, I am  taking donations…lol!!!
