iPhone 4 – It Feels Like the Coming of Christ
The iPhone 4 was launched on June 24 in six countries, to a public that had been waiting with baited breath since it was announced on June 7, 2010. The most remarkable change is the new design. It is stainless steel and acts as an antenna. The Apple processor is 512mb of eDRAM, double that of its predecessor (the iPhone 3GS). Whilst reviews of the device upon release were unanimously positive (including the Wall Street Journal stating that it is “the best in its class.”). Upon release users noticed that the signal strength was adversely affected when gripping the edge of the phone.
However, this fault has not stopped the clamour for these must-have devices. One of the best new features on the iPhone 4 is multitasking.

Another interesting characterize is that it is the first device to sustain video conferencing using cameras mounted on the front and back of the phone. Conference calls over the iPhone potential to be a fantastic and rare characterize for iPhone users, on top of this there are existing iPhone apps that help with organising and making conference calls. These roles combined make the iPhone 4 a great little tool when it comes to conference calls on the move.

In the UK O2 currently has announced that it has limited stock and is trying to push their stock to those areas in most need. Orange has already stated that they are currently out of stock.
