Today at WWDC, Steve Jobs unveiled the long-awaited and already-leaked iPhone 4 — which is not the “iPhone 4G,” as was anticipated. Here are the highlights:
The design of the iPhone has been completely overhauled. Gone is the soap-shaped smartphone of… well, yesterday. Instead, we have a sleek new ultra-thin device shaped not unlike a 2001 monolith, with rounded edges. In essence, it looks like a miniature iMac. It’s high-density glass on the front and back, with stainless steel around the sides. The phone’s antenna is built in to the metal siding — just one of many clever innovations that allow the new device to be so incredibly compact. It’s 34% thinner than the iPhone 3Gs, but a hair heavier.
