Apple iPhone 4 goes on sale today

Apple's much awaiting iPhone 4 handset has gone on sale from today and for the first time with a new Apple mobile phone it is available on many networks and not just the one, as the last iPhone 3G was only available on O2 when it launched.

This new mobile sports a brand new design unseen before in the series, along with a new operating system and a higher megapixel count within the camera amongst other new features.

Some of the key features in the new iPhone 4 range from FaceTime, their own video calling ability over WIFI and all from a camera on the front of the handset, where the image is shown on the mobile's 3.5-inch 960x640 multi-touch retina display.

There is now a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, capable of HD video recording driven by Apple’s A4 processor and all running from the new iOS 4 - which has just been made available for older handsets and the iPod touch.

All this is encased in a new stainless steel case design, which has taken the title of the thinnest smartphone in the world.

Networks from Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 and Three have all made public their prices where even Tesco have gotten in on the deal with a low £19 cost for the handset, only on a £45 per month contract.
