Unless you live under a rock you should have a bit of knowledge associated to the iPhone 4G. It’s the most popular smart phone in the world. Hell, it’s the most popular cell phone in the world. The first 3 days on the market this phone sold over 1.7 million units making it the best product launch apple has ever had.

This phone is arguably the best smart phone on the market. In the U.S. this phone is carried by the little brother of the 2 largest networks, AT&T. This phone is designed as a GSM world phone so it’s home on AT&T is fitting. With a strong network, amazingly large app store, and a following like no other this phones is poised to dominate the market for years to come. The phone houses Apple’s A4 chip which they currently use in the iPad which makes this unit no chump when it comes to hardware specs. This rendition of Apples iPhone was the first phone that apple really listened to their customers when it came to designing it. In the past the iPhone was a glorified iPod Touch with a radio receiver install in it. This version is a phone much more than an iPod. As long as apple addresses future problems promptly via software updates this phone will continue to live on top of the world cell phone scene.
