Bell Canada Announces iPhone 4 for July 30

A month ago, the Canadian mobile carrier Bell announced that it will distribute Apple’s latest smartphone. Now, according to their website, the carrier will fill in its shelves with iPhone 4 by the end of this month, more precisely on July 30. However, Bell is not the only carrier to bring the magical smartphone on Canadian ground. Two other major carriers, Rogers and Telus, have also announced to launch the device but nobody knows exactly when it will happen. Bell is the last operator that updates its website with the iPhone 4 offering, but it’s the first that also discloses the exact date of the launch.
Apple’s latest creation has some undeniable highlights. It packs an Apple A4 chip designed by Intrinsity and manufactured by Samsung (Cortex-A8 CPU integrated with a PowerVR SGX 535 GPU at 1Ghz). It offers its users 16 or 32 GB space for storage, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support, 512 MB RAM and HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps. The 5-megapixels camera with autofocus, LED flash, touch focus and geo-tagging will definitely not disappoint, while the GPS with A-GPS support, the digital compass, the TV-out, the MicroSIM card support only and the active noise cancellation with dedicated mic as well as the scratch-resistant glass back panel will be found useful by everyone.
Moreover, Apple iPhone 4 features a 3.5-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen (640×960 pixels resolution) with 16 Million colors, scratch-resistant surface, multi-touch input method, accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, three-axis gyro sensor and proximity sensor for auto turn-off. The display on the iPhone 4 has been designed by Apple and has been manufactured by LG. The screen is marketed by Apple as the “Retina Display,” based on the assertion that a display of approximately 300 ppi at a distance of 12 inches (305 mm) from one’s eye is the maximum amount of detail that the human retina can process.
For those still unfamiliar for what iPhone 4 can offer, the Bell’s website will give full information. Also, if you live in Canada and you want to make sure you will not lose the launch date, you should subscribe to Bell Canada’s emailing list to get updated news about iPhone 4.
Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that Canadians have serious doubts about this wonderful smartphone that has already created considerable controversy in the U.S. due to some reception problems that have sparked lawsuits against the manufacturers, Apple Computer Inc. Last Friday, Apple CEO Steve Jobs called a news conference to defend the iPhone 4, where he conceded that the phone had a problem. But, he insisted that the problem was one that also affected other smartphone manufacturers. So will Canadians welcome this device with their opened arms as the Japanese did? It remains to be seen.
