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.

Lol, Thorn, I think something confuse you... H264 _IS_ a standard... an International one. Moreover there’s open-source implementation for years... without any patents here in europe...

I understand that the use of a non-paten-free bugs you, but hey, Apple already have paid for the license and its hardware support h264 already (and not in an undefined future as with some other « open » video codec with without clear specs... but inferior bitrate compression ratio).

H264 is also a Telephony standard (yes like h263, etc) and is actually used in some videophone.
Asterisk can use it if I remember correctly...

Thus I’m pretty sure that you will soon find some apps that will enable SIP call with video (if the apple one don »t already do it).
