Verizon Wireless and Apple have collaborated to provide iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network beginning 10 February 2011.

iPhone 4 features Apple’s Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone resulting in crisp text, images and video, and FaceTime, which makes video calling a reality.

iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless will also include new Personal Hotspot capabilities, allowing customers to use iPhone 4 to connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices.

iPhone 4 features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 chip, a 3-axis gyro and a glass and stainless steel design.

It comes with an iOS 4, an advanced mobile operating system, which includes multitasking, folders, Game Centre, AirPlay and AirPrint wireless printing.

Through this new iPhone, customers will have access to the App Store with more than 300,000 apps available in an array of 20 categories, including games, business, news, sports, health and reference.
