Whether youíre in an airport or at the office, the Apple iPhone 4 can recognize and pick up wireless internet, just as your laptop or netbook can do. With the use of this technology one can send large files to a friend through e-mail, send a video or picture to a friend, and watch YouTube videos for hours, all made possible due to the utilization of high speed wireless internet through its wireless adapter.
No longer does one have to open up his or her mobile web browser and painstakingly wait while a video loads. Adapting to the climate of today's fast-growing technological world, Apple has teamed up with YouTube to offer a pre-installed app that searches and plays YouTube videos easily and conveniently, with a special video player built-into the operating system.
----SMS and MMS Messaging
Gone are the days of graphically unappealing text conversations with no fluid design and easily readable contact-based message history. With the introduction of the iPhone's 'bubble' technology, users are now presented with a complete history of their and another person's text messages, similar to that of an online chatroom, something PC and Internet enthusiasts the world over are rejoicing over.
----Fluid And Responsive Web Browser
Apple's decision to integrate its Safari web browser into the Apple iPhone 4 and its past editions has proved monumentally fruitful in the area of customer satisfaction and convenience, evoking massive shifts in the design and use of mobile browsers. The simple design and advanced coding make this browser a must have for any serious mobile phone user or busy businessperson. Webpages shine as they load on the screen, reminiscent to the ease and reliability of traditional PC browsers. Users can bookmark their favourite sites and have up to eight(8) pages open at one time, something never seen before in a mobile browser.
With the aforementioned features, itís no wonder why the Apple iPhone 4 is a favourite amongst mobile phone enthusiasts and critics. Far into the future will other companies be scrambling to produce a similar device. If you or a loved one or friend are looking for the perfect mobile phone, choose the iPhone 4.
