When the iPhone 4 debuts later this month, it is reportedly going to be available in Best Buy and Radio Stack stores, in addition to AT&T’s and Apple’s own retail locations.
This will give customers more options to try out this smartphone before buying it, especially in areas without AT&T or Apple stores. It should also help reduce crowding, as sales of this model are likely to be heavy — over a million iPhone 3GS units were sold the weekend it debuted.
Of course, consumers will also have the option of ordering the iPhone 4 online from AT&T’s website, where pre-orders will begin June 15.
Overview of the Apple iPhone 4
Apple’s fourth-generation smartphone is going to be a significant upgrade from the current one, starting with its 3.5-inch, 640 x 960 touchscreen, a much higher resolution than any previous iPhone has offered.
It’s going to have a new slimmer design and run iOS 4.0, the latest version of Apple’s operating system, on a 1 GHz Apple A4 processor. This will be the first version of Apple’s mobile OS with support for multitasking.
The iPhone 4 will have a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with a flash and support for recording 720p video at 30 frames per second. In addition, it’s going to include a small front-facing camera for video chatting with an app called FaceTime.
Pricing and Availability
The Apple iPhone 4 will be available on June 24. The only wireless carrier in the U.S. that will be allowed to offer it is AT&T.
It is going to come in two configurations: a version with 16 GB of storage will cost $200 and one with 32 GB will go for $300.
