Apple iPhone 4: The Next Generation Phone

The new Apple iphone 4 from Apple is ravishing, brilliant, and quite different from the earlier versions. The newest version is indispensable, easier to use, and more powerful. It has seven hours of talk time with 3 G networks, up to 10 hours of browsing on wi-fi, up to 10 hours of video and 40 hours of audio playback.
Facetime: In plain language, it is video calling. Now we can make use of the two cameras on the phone that can be switched by just tapping.
Retina display: The Retina display on iPhone 4 is the sharpest, most vibrant, highest-resolution phone screen ever, with four times the pixel count of previous iPhone models.
Multitasking: iPhone 4 introduces a completely new way of multitasking. Now you can run your favorite third-party apps — and switch between them instantly — without slowing down the performance of the foreground app or draining the battery unnecessarily.
HD Video Recording and Editing: Shoot your own movies in high definition. Capture impressive video even in low-light settings, thanks to the advanced backside illumination sensor and built-in LED light.
5 Megapixel Camera with LED flash: Take beautiful, detailed photos with the new 5-megapixel camera with built-in LED flash. The advanced backside illumination sensor captures great pictures even in low light.

The next-generation iPhone is drastically new and different from what came before. It has a few new features and a few new different features: Here is a list:
What's new?
Front-facing video chat camera
Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS).
Camera flash
Micro-SIM instead of standard or regular SIM, which means none of the older SIM cards will work.
Improved display. By developing pixels a mere 78 micrometers wide, Apple engineers were able to pack four times the number of pixels into the same 3.5-inch (diagonal) screen found on earlier iPhone models. The resulting pixel density of iPhone 4 — 326 pixels per inch — makes text and graphics look smooth and continuous at any size.
What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
Split buttons for volume
Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic
What's different?
1. The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
2. An aluminum border going completely around the outside
3. Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
4. Everything is more squared off
5. 3 grams heavier
6. 16% more battery life
7. Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery
This phone will soon hit the markets. I am not too sure about the price range as of now but you can check it on online shopping sites or price comparison portals.
