iPhone 4 vs. iPhone 3GS

Thanks to Engadget’s handiwork, we now have a stat breakdown of the iPhone 4 vs. the older model.

Standout Numbers:

  • Quadband HSDPA.  That means likely T-Mobile 3G compatible. 
  • Wireless: 802.11N finally – though iOS 4 might enable it on the 3GS
  • Gyroscope will do some interesting things.  Air mouse for instance – perhaps gaming on AppleTVs in the future?
  • Facetime is now an open standard which means Apple and partners will be building for other platforms like gulp* Android.
  • More Battery life, up to an hour of talk time more – that is a big one over Android who already lags in battery.
  • It weighs a few gams more but now is less than a centimeter thick!
