iPhone 4 is here. With trembling fingers and hearts in our mouths, we peeled back the wrapping to caress Apple's latest wonder product.

The iPhone 4 is the latest version of Apple's app-tastic smartphone. It packs a new high-resolution 'Retina Display' glass screen and stainless steel aerial built into the frame itself. New features including FaceTime video calling and the new iOS 4 operating system.

Our intrepid man on the street Luke Westaway queued up all night with the Apple fans at London's Regent Street Apple Store, and the fruits of his labours have arrived at CNET UK Towers. Our team of experts is poking, prodding, testing, weighing, and measuring the phone as you read this, with a full review on its way shortly.

In the meantime, click continue to vicariously feel the sense of childlike wonder that washes over anyone opening the iPhone for the first time, and see exactly what you get in the box when you splash out your hard-earned cash.

The bumf: SIM card removal pokey-stick, legal info, and 'Finger Tips' quick start manual. And stickers. We stuck them on resident Apple hater Ian's monitor, for a laugh.

The SIM slips sensously into the middle of the phone on the special caddy, and you're ready to go.
