    Ok so
    I just finished watching the keynote and Nowhere in it steve mentioned any speed improvements on the iPhone 4 over the 3GS, and we all now Steve wouldn't miss the chance to brag about new features such a 1ghz ZOMG

    My fear is that apple only used the A4 chip to improve battery life and get a slight higher clock, and that in fact the A4 it is under-clocked to say 700/800 mhz


    I sure hope i am dead wrong about this
    What are your thoughts

    I Will FREAK if I buy that phone and it has the same clock speed as the 3G.. Especially if it has a freaking A4 which does 1 gh/z on the iPad....

    It's either 1 or 1.2 GHz.

    @ Shåwa
    Crossing my fingers for that to be true, 1.2ghz would be amazing
    But i cant help to think about why Steve did NOT mention any speed improvements whatsoever over the 3GS with the A4 chip

    If they under clock it I will be so mad, that's just stupid and there's no reason for them to do it. Although a 1GHz processor in that thing might overheat it

    What's strange is they say nothing about it in the tech specs....
