The New Apple iPhone 0S 4

I would be so happy if I was the guy that found the next generation Appple iPhone (0S 4) which was 'accidentally' lost in a bar in Redwood City, California. I would revel in the fortune. The funniest thing is that it happened to be found and picked up by someone from Gizmodo; the most awesome of gadget and tech blogs (what are the odds?) and my personal bible of iPhone applications (what are the odds?). Gizmodo have convincing evidence that it is real. Hype?

I've stolen one of their pictures, as I believe in sharing the wealth; and they have released a short video. It looks wicked - now I only have to wait a year and a half for my current mobile contract to expire:

" 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 SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• 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 changed

• 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
• An aluminum border going completely around the outside
• Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
• Everything is more squared off
• 3 grams heavier
• 16% Larger battery
• Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery"
