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.

That's because it's a feature nobody wants video chat/call.

UMTS phones have been able to make video calls for ages here in Italy (since the arrival of '3', H3G) but simply nobody WANTS to use them.

There has been a huge push for YEARS for the videocall as the killer feature of 3G, but nobody cared. When I call someone I want to talk to him, not see him, much less let them see me.

The real killer feature of 3G is obviously internet connectivity and bandwith, but the usb 3G "modems" have only become common during the last couple of years.

The video-call is not even mentioned anymore in the ads because, frankly, it's a bogus feature.
