It’s official: Apple’s iPhone 4 will be available in Canada by the end of July, for about $199 for 16GB and $299 for 32MB (based on announced U.S. pricing), and carried by Bell, Rogers and Telus. In case you haven’t heard the news, Apple’s latest not only has a 5-megapixel camera (with LED flash and the ability to shoot n’ edit 720p HD video) but a front-facing camera, too, so you can video chat with friends and family over a WiFi connection. The redesigned iPhone 4 also boasts a better battery, ultra high-resolution screen and the ability to multitask between applications. Speaking of which, amazing (and amazingly cheap) photo-centric apps make this smartphone a treat for shutterbugs. Hipstamatic ($1.99), for example, offers a huge variety of nostalgic lenses, flashes and film to choose from. For Marc Saltzman (For Canwest News Service) PHOTO-SMARTPHONES
