Any idea what is the speed of processor inside iPhone4?
I was keeping fingers crossed that Apple would announce some more speed enhancements in this upgrade compared to 3GS. Its Apple's own chip inside, but I was wondering what could be the speed of the chip inside. Even though I am hoping to hear a number like 1GHz, but since it has longer battery life, its making me think probably it would be clocked at somewhere around 600-800MHz. I havent owned any iPhone or iPad before, so I dont know how fluid the UI was before and how the apps performed, but do you guys think it will be any "faster" than 3GS??

It will definitely be faster than the 3GS, but the 3GS is no slouch. The 3GS is already a very fast device and quite honestly it's always delivered smooth performance at high speeds. When Jobs finally got to load a web page on iPhone 4, it seemed very fast, much faster than 3GS. So that says something for processor speeds.
However, you can compare Android phones by specs, because it's the same OS. But iPhone is not a spec sheet phone. It's not all about numbers. Apple's software optimization takes the hardware very far.

We won't know until it's released and torn apart. I hope it's 1 GHz, but I bet an A4 is just like an Intel core I series. Same foundation, but differences in speed and other factors. As for RAM, 512 would be nice, but most likely 256.

optimized for maximum performance. I know it'll be
faster than the 3Gs, but I don't think it will be twice
as fast. If it were, Jobs would have mentioned that
like he did last year with the 3Gs vs 3G.
my 3Gs if I don't get a substantial offer. I'm looking
for $450-$500 now.

Just go to YouTube and search iPhone 3GS vs Incredible and you'll see it's not even noticably slower in most cases, and the smooth transitions make it appear faster, because it gives the OS a natural progression, instead of apps just appearing or the browser just rotating with no transitions.

i am going to say the processor is going to be 1GHZ but if they downclock it i see it sitting ar round 800mhz which is faster than 3GS cause i believe the cortex A8 is clocked at 600 mhz for the 3gs if i am not mistaken. As for ram 512 would be nice but 256 is just right i would imagine.

their 3Gs and went to the EVO and still experience
lag on their EVO in which they never did on the iPhone.
Of course we can blame the 3rd party apps, but with
the 3rd party apps on the iPhone, this does not

Regardless of the actual clock speed of the A4 in iPhone 4, I suspect it will be noticeably faster than the 3GS ... I do believe if it were 1ghz they would have announced that, so I would wager that it is slower. But that's okay, still going to be amazing!

My guess is they have the A4 slightly underclocked, for an even greater battery savings.
They probably only noticed a slight performance increase at the full 1ghz, so they bumped it down a little.
The ONLY reason I say that, is because they clearly stated the 1ghz. A4 chip in the iPad.
With the iPhone, they only said the A4 chip was in it. If they stated that it was underclocked, a lot of people would be turned off regardless to the fact that it's still blazing fast.
