Stream of Apple's WWDC iPhone 4 keynote now availableApple has posted a live stream of Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 keynote, during which Chief Executive Steve Jobs introduced iPhone 4 to the world.
The video has been posted on Apple's site in QuickTime and MPEG-4, and the keynote — which runs nearly two hours — can be viewed in its entirety.
Apple used the event to formally unveil iPhone 4, its next-generation handset with a high resolution Retina Display, a high-definition 720p rear video camera with LED flash, and a forward-facing camera for video chat. The newly redesigned device has a larger battery, custom A4 processor, and is only 9.3mm thick and 24 percent thinner than the iPhone 3GS.
Jobs' "one more thing" at the end of his presentation was the introduction of FaceTime, a video chat service for users of the iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi. Apple will make FaceTime an open standard for adoption in other products and devices.
Monday's keynote was not without its share of issues, namely networking issues caused by an abundance of Wi-Fi hotspots inside the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. But technical difficulties couldn't ruin the show, which still managed to impress many in the audience.
