Not sure what's all happening, but my interest is always piqued even though it's a Developer Conference.

Bout to start in 10 mins.

Ok, so Jobs unveiled some of the new iPhone 4G features.

"The phone features a number of enhancements over its predecessor, the iPhone 3GS, including higher screen resolution (dubbed Retina Display), a front-facing camera, and a longer lasting battery. It's also 24% thinner."


Idk if this was already posted, but apparently there was a prototype that was lost and found. Of course there's a whole leak on it...

I can't wait to see the video with Jobs flipping out at everyone using Wifi.

Crashed New York Times demo and the video chat demo. :lol:

Haven't paid attention to this - so is the new iPhone indeed the same as the prototype that the dude lost?

What I took away from it:

Still 3.5"
Still 16 & 32GB
Video chatting only over Wifi
A crazy fucking awesome screen. So awesome that it has more pixels than your retina can even process. They threw some in there for good measure in case we evolved before the next iPhone iteration came out.

The screen res really is all it has going for it. Behind that screen, it's another incremental upgrade, only barely faster than the predecessor. Also, I love the "Retinal Display" marketing bs they came up with, so much better than just calling it HD :rofl: I'll be honest though, at 854x480 on my Droid, I can't make out individual pixels, and I have flawless vision. They only threw out the 300dpi number to make their screen look that much better than the Droid or Nexus One or Incredible of EVO 4G, IMO.

Honestly, there comes a point when you have to ask yourself how much screen awesomeness you really need. Even the old 1G iPhones have pretty fuckin' awesome screens on them, and the screen on this HTC I have for work is unreal.

I mean, better is better, but it's like the old video card wars where you'd spend $500 to upgrade to the latest and greatest to run 8x AA instead of 4, or get 40FPS instead of 35 and convince yourself that it was worth the money.

You've got the HD2, that's as much screen awesomeoness as one needs. Seriously, 4.3" at a lower res, IMO, trumps 3.5" at a higher res. 3.7" on my Droid seems small by comparison to the EVO 4G/HD2, and I have a higher res screen for fucks sake :lol:

No, but I hear you may get Tethering next year! :lol:

Hasn't AT&T had MMS for like, half a year at least though?
I've had a crackberry for about a year, but when I had an iPhone, it didn't have MMS which is why I was curious.
