Summary
The launch of the iPhone got off to a bit of a rocky start to say the
least, with consumers and the press questioning its reliability and
build quality. However, four months down the line, the iPhone 4 is
well and truly here and boy we‘re certainly hooked!
With over 100,000 apps available, the Apple App store has hit over
2 billion downloads, making the iPhone by far the best choice for
music, game and film lovers alike. Every major brand has jumped
onto the app phenomenon as they aim to present consumers with a
quick fix solution to anything and everything and all in the palm of
their hands. However, it’s the iPhone 4’s camera that has really seen
this handset step up a gear. Boasting a new high definition feature and
an inbuilt flash powerful enough to light up the entire UAE, it‘s time
to go play!
