The long awaited launch of the White version of the popular iPhone 4 is nearly upon is. Still offering the excellent features of the black variety, the stylish new finish looks set to gain many new admirers.
Forgetting just how good the phone looks, one area where the iPhone 4 is really great is in the multimedia features that it offers. It is the perfect audio handset thanks to its manufacturers being the same brand behind the world famous iPod. This means the iPhone 4 operates in the same manner as the iPod Touch. When held in landscape mode, the built in accelerometer chip kicks in giving you a gorgeous looking carousel full of your crystal clear cover art. Tracks can be selected by album, artist, genre or title, and thanks to the high powered A4 processor your choices load almost instantly. The excellent iTunes is the program used to download and transfer files, and this is perhaps the most easy to use platform available for performing such tasks. When it comes to how good your tracks sound, well that really is up to you thanks to a 3.5mm headphone jack enabling a massive range of headphones to be used with the device. The phone comes in two different storage capacities, 16GB and 32GB, with the larger one perhaps being more appropriate if you want to store a large number of tracks, or indeed take advantage of the HD Video capture. This 720P footage can be captured at a rate of 30 frames per second, with a useful video light available should conditions require it. Still shots can also be snapped at 5 mega pixel resolution, whereas the secondary camera is not only ideal for self portraits, but essential for video calling.
"FaceTime" is an aspect of the iPhone 4 White that much of the marketing campaign has focused on, and it is essentially Apples attempt to bring video calling into the 21st century. This new method differs however from previous video call services in one major way, and that is that it utilises the phones WiFi connection. This not only offers a faster data exchange rate and thus a clearer picture, but it also eliminates the costs of connecting to a cellular network. The WiFi also excels when it comes to browsing the web. The Safari web browser is easy to use, and thanks to the overall speed on the phone, pages load in an instance. All good smartphones like this and the HTC HD7 also off 3G connectivity, giving the fastest data transfer speed whilst on the move, making your handset truly versatile regardless of your location.
The forthcoming release of the iPhone 4 White looks set to reinvigorate interest in this model, nearly three quarters of a year after its initial release. The iPhone 4 White and the Blackberry 9100 Curve 3G are coming soon.
