The new iPhone 4G will be officially "announced" by Apple today. 

Kind of anti-climactic nearly two months after details were leaked of its existence, but we're excited nonetheless.

But Apple, we have a bigger question: When will we be able to buy this bad boy?

Steve Jobs will highlight the features of the phone during his keynote speech at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2010 today at 9:42 a.m. according to some quirky insider info from PC World.

Based on the Gizmodo coverage of the leaked phone a few months back, we already know it should feature a higher-resolution display, a bigger battery, a second mic (for noise cancelling), front- and rear-facing cameras, and look more square (akin to the iPad) than its predecessors.

There's even word (again thanks to Gizmodo) that yet another future version will feature solar cells for charging -- and the new design should help accommodate.

So when can we buy it? Just based on history, some time late in June, the iPhone 4G should be available to AT&T users.

And it will come with a new data plan. AT&T will be charging an extra $15 to $25 a month for the added capacity of the iPhone.

Are you champing at the bit to buy one?
