"So in 2007 when we launched the iPhone, it was my privilege to make a call to Jony Ive… and I’m going to do the same thing now." Boom, video call.
Now the iPhone 4G running on the iOS4 has built in video call
“You know I grew up with the Jetsons… and video calls… and now it’s real. What about you?" Jony: "I grew up with the same thing, and it’s real now!" Steve: "It is real… especially when people turn off their WiFi." Jony: "We’ve had to wait an awful long time for this to become reality." Steve: "Okay, let’s have lunch soon."
It’s called FaceTime. WiFi only. iPhone 4 to iPhone 4. No setup.

11:38AM Wow. You can flip the image to the rear camera. This commercial is pretty intense.

“iBooks. We are bringing it to the iPhone with the iPhone 4."
"We’ll have it on the iPhone, the iPad, and the iPod touch. What can we do with these together? First, you can purchase and download a book. It will download wirelessly. You can download the same book to all your devices at no extra charge. Buy it on your iPad, download to your iPhone. And iBooks will automatically and wirelessly sync your current place, all your bookmarks, and all your notes." No extra charge? We’ll take it.
With notes able to be added!
