APPLE CEO STEVE JOBS officially unveiled the iPHONE 4, which he called "the biggest leap we've taken since the original iPhone." The presentation was held at APPLE's annual developers conference at the MOSCONE Center in SAN FRANCISCO, CNN reports.
Among its innovations is being "the thinnest smartphone on the planet" JOBS noted, at 9.3 mm thick; it also has a front-facing camera for video conferencing, and the camera on the back will have an LED flash.
The iPHONE 4, redesigned with a glass back and metal sides, comes in black or white and will hit retail JUNE 24th, priced at $199 for 16GB of storage and $299 for 32GB.
Also at the presentation, JOBS pointed out that APPLE has already sold over 2 million iPADS since it went on sale two months ago. Furthermore, over 35 million iPAD apps have been downloaded, which translates into 17 apps per iPAD.
All told, APPLE's App Store has been responsible for downloads of over 5 billion apps --and that number will no doubt be increasing with the introduction of a new "Guitar Hero" app for the iPHONE and iPOD TOUCH; an app for the FACEBOOK game FarmVille; and a free NETFLIX app that will let users download and watch movies on the go.
