The new Apple iPhone 4

In January, Steve Jobs announced the much awaited tablet- Apple iPad. Yesterday, at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco yesterday, the world saw the word’s thinnest smartphone: the iPhone 4. Apple’s new baby has new features and the renamed iPhone OS to iOS. (Makes me wonder about the proprietary name occupied by CISCO for operating on the operating system of its routers, Cisco IOS). Despite Gizmodo had purchased a leaked iphone from an Apple Engineer who had a nice beer, however, we got to discover  lot of exciting new features during the keynote.

The new iPhone 4 – This changes everything, again

The main features of the next generation iPhone is amazing!

Below is a summary of the top 10 features than Jobs mentioned in the Keynote:

    Now that your Iphone 3G has lose value and has come to $99, would you afford to sell it at this price,i.e around Rs3500??????????? It seems so cheap to me,lol.

    • Hi Peter Crouch!! lol
      welcome to my blog

      ahh yeah, about the selling price…

      I don’t think Orange Mauritius is making an offer of Rs. 3500 for a brand new iPhone 3GS….

      However their offer will be modified and put on promotion (we shall observe that in the future) in order to sell the stock of current 3GS. (liquidation)

      and i can’t afford to sell it at this price, give me a crazy award if i do this… 😀

    haha. Yeah to some extent you are right, but I think your decision is a short term decision….everything that is ‘technology’ its price drops rapidly. It will not just depend on Orange Mauritius, many genuine 3Gs are sold not through Orange also, just wait for some weeks you may see someone selling a new one at around Rs5000.
    Well, i think its the time to find someone and sell it at a price you want now because the more you will wait, the more you will regret!!lol

    • Yeps tu as raison!! 8)

      But if i sell it now,,, I will miss my ‘Chou’ enormously…can’t live without the possibilities of iPhoning!!! 🙂

      Maybe, after the iPhone 4 is out in M’tius, will try to purchase it (if there’s good fortune , of course) and give the iPhone 3GS to relative to use or buy…. 😉

    The price is for AT&T contract! Not for a Pay and Go! will be much more higher!

    18 June, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    • Hi Naveesh!
      Yes, of course, here in Mauritius, the price will be much higher unfortunately..

      Maybe it might be around Rs. 38, 000 pre-pay.

      and about the data plans…. no idea. 3G connection or Edge is slow in iPhone, am not totally satisfied with the speed on the cellular data network. I don’t know if abroad, other carriers like Verizon, Vodafone, Orange France offer much better satisfaction?!??

    Hey guys do you anywhere where I can buy an IPhone 3GS?Don’t want to buy with Orange(too expensive)

      You can buy it in an electronic shop found on the 3rd floor of Happy World House PL(dnt remember the name of the shop) but the phone is jailbroken unlocked,not factory unlocked…Thus any botched attempt to update ur phone may brick it…Only orange supply reliable iphone but i dnt know if they sell it factory unlocked if it’s on prepay…
      If u have family in canada,singapore,hong kong or dubai or u r goin there,u can get ur factory unlocked iphone 3gs at around Rs 16000-17000…

    Hello, I just wanted to know when iphone4 will be
    introduced in Mauritius & at what price? I’am a student
    & want that amazing phone. And will Orange only be
    providing this phone on its market? And that price of Rs38,000 is
    way too expensive.
