â€¢ Front-facing video chat camera
â€¢ Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
â€¢ Camera flash
â€¢ Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
â€¢ Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x640 display thrown around beforeâ€"it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
â€¢ What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
â€¢ Split buttons for volume
â€¢ Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic
â€¢ The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
â€¢ An aluminum border going completely around the outside
â€¢ Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
â€¢ Everything is more squared off
â€¢ 3 grams heavier
â€¢ 16% Larger battery
â€¢ Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery
QuoteValve has revealed its plans for a brand new version of Steam, its digital distribution and social networking service. And it's letting Steam users test its long list of new features out, starting today.
The visual and functional update to Steam includes an expanded Friends List, letting players keep closer tabs on what their Steam buddies are playing, and an aggregated news feed, helping PC gamers stay informed without having to visit fancy web sites or RSS readers for their video game news fix.
There are also sharp looking UI improvements, both for the Steam client and the game overlays, plus some great "Library Wrangling." The custom categories one can apply to one's Steam game library does sound nice, Valve. Thanks. There's a longer list of everything that's new at the official announcement.
If you want to opt-in to the public beta (which may be experiencing some birthing pains right now) you can do so from within your current version of Steam. Hit up Valve's official Steam site to learn more and see the new UI in pretty pictures.
(Oh, and if you've somehow found your Steam friends list has been deleted, you're not the only one. That may be tied to the changes Valve is making, but we'll check in.)
