Apple Announces the Beautiful New iPhone 4

The first time I saw the new iPhone via Gizmodo I was very skeptical about the design simply because of the square-ish feel. On top of that I really just wasn’t to accept the change. All of the previous products had these beautiful rounded edges and just felt fluid in your hand. I now see this design as giving the phone more substance. The design to me just feels more modern. I would love to get my hands on this phone and also this house—what a perfect, modern fit.

See the key features.

    I love this design. After watching this morning’s keynote, I love it even more. It didn’t matter to me that there were obvious seams in the aluminum side casing, it just looked good. When I found out it was actually born out of engineering creativity to incorporate the antennae in the device, it blew my mind. I’m out of my 1st gen iPhone contract and I’ll be getting this one as soon as it’s available.

    I was following the keynote happenings via Engadget and one of the post updates quoted Jobs as saying it “looks like an old Leica camera.” Brilliant. Another testament to Apple’s firm foundation of Technology and Liberal Arts.

  2. I’ve been in love with the new shape since I saw that leak video a few months back. I’m 25 years old and have yet to own a cellphone. Perhaps I will look into one of these babies.

  3. Mat, perhaps the fact that you have yet to own a cellphone, is more astonishing than the new iphone itself!

    Personally I couldn’t be without a phone for a long time. I’ve grown too attached and feel the need to have it at all times.

    I’m pretty content with my 3GS still, and hopefully won’t have to upgrade until next summer, but this iPhone definitely looks great, aesthetically and considering its features. The new gyroscope and two-camera system opens up all sorts of creative possibilities, not to mention it shoots HD video in 720p.

    Another interesting aspect that came to my attention recently is that FacetoFace will allow people to communicate in sign language via phone. That opens up all sorts of doors.

    In regard to Shelby’s response to Mat’s comment, I’m wondering how much we will start seeing people connected simply via iPhone or mobile device. Content producers likely need the desktop (myself and Shelby among them), but for the average user, (the one AT&T says needs less than 200 megabytes of data/month) an iPhone and iPad probably covers most of your computing needs. We are already seeing a disconnecting of many “home phone” lines in favor of the mobile model, as well as cable TV in favor of internet TV. How soon will this translate to computers themselves?

    I’ve been a big fan of this ever since I saw the leak photos. It looks less like a toy and more like a high-end piece of electronics. I haven’t given in to the iPhone yet, but it looks like this may be the model to do it.
