Apple iPhone 4 | Available Now

The banner says it all, but just in case you REALLY did forget, today is the launch of the new iPhone 4 from Apple. The queue, the carnival-esque atmosphere, the legion of Apple employee egging buyers on... all the usual suspects will be at Apple (and retail partners) locations in USA, Germany, France, UK, and Japan. Of course as always, the Japanese consumers were the first to get the palm-size techno-wonderment, though not by foresight of what's latest and greatest, but by default because of time differences. Then, there are the well documented mis-steps: the missing white variant and the crash of the pre-order system. Still, a minute dent in the cadre of rave reviews about the phone thus far. Now the question is, will the new iPhone outsell everything else Apple offered before up to this point in time? We will definitely have an answer in a few weeks.
