The Apple iPhone 4 and Apple OS 4 announcements did not disappoint today. The rumors going around the web about the lost phone in the bar were true. And it is a beautiful device. I'll leave most of my opinion out of it. The specs speak for themselves. But I will say that this is one beautiful device. From the new sleek sexy design to the front-facing camera, video conferencing, faster processor, HD video, and multitasking, if you are a current iPhone user you KNOW you want this phone.

The iPhone 4 will be available for pre-order on June 15th. It's released in the US and a few other markets on June 24th. The prices are no surprise. The 16gb model is $199. The 32gb model is $299. Surprisingly there was no mention of the AT&T plans or recently announced changes during the press conference. However, there was a jab from Steve Jobs during his demo of FaceTime when he referenced the fact that for now it only works over Wi-Fi. He said something to the affect of "We need to work on these carriers a bit." And we know who that is right? :)

It will be interesting to watch how the sells go this year. I'm sure they will be even more than the previous years which is always a ridiculous amount over the first weekend.
