Apple Unveils 4G iPhone with Ultra-high Resolution Display

We assume unless you've been sleeping in late today and have yet to check almost any website, you're well aware Apple presented the iPhone 4G to anticipated fanfare. We were pleasantly surprised despite some of the fun being dampened by the (in)famous Gizmodo early reveal; the 4x retina display, iMovie app and FaceTime video calling makes the new iPhone more than solid update to Apple's cash cow in our eyes.

But what did you think? Was this enough to sway you away from your existing iPhone, or the option of an Android mobile, or to upgrade from something else?

An interesting note is Jobs addressed the much nitpicked seams in the new iPhone's metal side design, revealing each of the panels operates as an integrated antenna. Form follows function this time, and we begrudgingly admit this detail is acceptable due to its utility. Anyone who has followed tech and Apple blogs should pretty much know most of the details of the phone (slimmer form factor, multitasking, upgraded 5 megapixel camera with LED flash), but label us as pleasantly surprised with the announcement of a 3-axis gyroscope alongside a better iBooks app to use on both the iPhone and iPad.

All the details of the new iPhone available at Apple.

But where was the Mac Mini/Apple TV updates? Guess Steve is keeping them as hobbies for now.
