iPhone 4 arrives 2 days early for some, 512MB RAM confirmed

The iPhone 4 actually arrived two days early for some people - and it's already been unboxed on video, activated, used and torn down. There are new camera samples too, in more realistic conditions than the optimal lightning in those first promo photos.

One lucky fellow actually got his iPhone 4 two days early (we knew it was coming early, but not this early) and he did what anyone else would do in his place - shoot an unboxing video. The box as usual contains a charger, sync cable and headphones. What's missing is the SIM ejector tool. a polishing cloth and a dock (but that's too much to ask, we know).

Someone else got their iPhone 4 a couple of days earlier too and they've snap quite a few photos of the phone in action. It's not just photos of the phone though, there are camera samples too (including low-light shots with flash). There're even head-to-head shots of the new and old iPhone screen. We've seen camera samples before, but the low-light shots are quite interesting too.

As you can see, they even managed to activate it. Activation might soon become a problem - Apple says they got 10 times the expected preorders, which crashed their servers. They've had some time to prepare their activation servers, but whether or not it's enough, remains to be seen.

iFixit found 512MB of RAM inside the iPhone 4

Being what they are, the guys at iFixit got their hands on a iPhone 4 and tore it to pieces - and here's what they found inside. The battery is 1420 mAh Li-Po (it's not soldered to the board). What's more interesting next to the 1GHz A4 processor there is 512MB of RAM - twice what the iPhone 3GS and even the iPad has.

the sim card ejector tool IS included in the box, in the normal place. Certainly for UK models.
