I Love My New iPhone 4

I ordered my iPhone 4 through AT&T's website on June 15 at 6:00 ET.  Based on the initial reviews of the phone, I figured it would be best to order one as early as I can.  Sure enough, by noon that day AT&T and Apple's ordering systems were going haywire.

I was expecting my iPhone 4 to arrive on June 24.  To my surprise, the phone arrived a day ealier by FedEx.  I'm not sure if this something that Apple intended or not, but it appears that I'm not the only one to receive my phone a day early.

I haven't done much with the phone yet except to activate it and synchronize all my apps and settings from my old 3GS.  So far, I'm loving 3 things about the phone:

1.  The flash on the camera is making a huge difference in taking photos inside.

2. The size and feel of the phone are much better than the previous models.  The phone feels very solid.

3. The display is unbelievable.  Reading the NY Times, e-mail, and books is just so much clearer than the 3GS or even the iPad.

I'm looking forward to trying out some of the other new features, including the HD video and FaceTime.  Alas, I don't know anyone else that has received their new iPhone yet to try out the FaceTime feature.  I hope that Skype makes their iPhone app compatabile for FaceTime or at least update it to support video chat.  I will post something soon about the additional features.
