Apple As everybody already expected, Apple "unveiled" the new iPhone tonight. It's called the iPhone 4, and brings the iPhone up to par with what's already available on other smartphone platforms, hardware wise, while raising the bar on a few specific points (the display, mostly). The company also announced a name change for its mobile operating system - it's now called iOS. What we didn't get during this year's WWDC keynote? News about the Mac, Mac OS X, or the Apple TV. Make no mistake: the iPhone and iPad is where it's at.

Shame that their video chat is incompatible with existing 3G video


Why?

equipped phones. On the plus side they are using higher quality codecs than existing standards I guess, and their protocols are internet-oriented rather than 3G-network-only. Perhaps the higher


Right now there's loads of phones here in the UK that can make video calls, but I don't know anybody here who has ever made or received one.


You kind of make my point. 3G video call support exists but isn't used by anyone, so why bother supporting an unused standard when you can support standards that are in large scale use across multiple platforms?
