Enterprise Mobile Today's second report from the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference takes a look inside the new iPhone 4 at eight notable features of the new smartphone, courtesy of a deep dive by Apple's CEO Steve Jobs, plus "one more thing," which turned out to be the biggest feature of the phone.
