A few important things to note about the new iPhone 4: The resolution has been increased. It's now 960x640, known as a Retina Display. The Apple A4 chip and bigger battery life means 7 hours of talk time. The antenna is actually built into the design of the hardware, and you'll notice it on the sides. There are two cameras, one on the front, one on the back, and it'll record 720p video. The new iMovie app will allow you to edit your movies on the fly. With FaceTime, you'll be able to do video chats from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4, and only on WiFi for now. Developers will get iOS4 today.
