Apple has updated it's flagship web browser to the latest version, 5 without even a plug during today's Steve Jobs keynote. The new release promises even more HTML 5 compatibility as well as a new "reader" view that removes unwanted ads,etc.
Now that the WWDC 2010 keynote's over and the dust settles, we know what we're going to get in the coming weeks. iPhone 4 with a brand new look and tons new features, iOS 4, iMovie for iPhone, new developer APIs, iAd, and then some. Apple definitely changed the game today. But what about the things we wanted but didn't get?
We're all extremely excited to get our hands on the new hardware and OS but for many users, iOS 4 still leaves certain things to be desired. Keep on reading to see what we would have liked to see.
What kind of case do you want for your iPhone 4? Reason we thought about it is iPhone 4 has a glass front and back that we think is some unicorn tear infused admantium/transparent aluminum hybrid, but the moment he saw it Chad's reaction was to shriek "oh my goodness no there's two sides to shatter if I drop it" (which Dieter's imagination went immediately to ball-peen hammers, don't ask!)
Apple has put their iPhone 4: this changes everything. Again video up on Apple.com and on YouTube. Like previous videos, this one shows the design and engineering process that went into making the iPhone 4 and includes key members of Apple's iPhone executive team talking about the features and thinking that went into it.
It's filled with hyperbole, but it's also filled with terrific little details. Check it out after the break!
We've once again taken our good buddy Phil Nickinson's Android Central tech spec sheet featuring the Droid Incredible, Evo 4G, and Nexus One, and added in Apple's just-announced iPhone 4 and we gotta tell ya -- smartphones have never been this good. Everyone is firing on all cylinders these days and from the highly polished package that is Apple's latest iPhone 4 to the power and diversity of Google's Android platform, consumers are the true winners.
Apple's just-announced iPhone 4 will be available in black and white, in $199 for 16GB, $299/32GB, and will hit the US, France, Germany, UK, and Japan on June 24. Pre-orders start June 15.
Other countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada (!), Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, and Switzerland will get it in July, and 88 countries total will be online by September.
Steve Jobs brought back a doozy of a "One more thing..." for his WWDC 2010 keynote today -- the awkwardly named but awesome-looking FaceTime video calling for iPhone 4.
Apple says it requires zero setup, works landscape or portrait, front or back camera, and supports h.264, AAC, SIP, STUN. It's Wi-Fi only in 2010 but they're working with carriers to support it over 3G in the future.
