He said the level of the flood was measured between 300 to 600 millimeters depending on places and spots.

Apple iPhone 4′s price is really cheap, but it’s one of the most powerful phones loaded without thousands of features at your fingertips. Please bear in mind that iPhone 4 is not really 4 and people around the world, specially Apple fanatics mistakenly tagged the latest iPhone as 4. It’s only called iPhone 4, not 4G. Again, it’s called iPhone 4 or iPhone 4.0.

The much anticipated iPhone 4 price and availability was announced by Steve Jobs in WWDC 2010 during his Keynote speech. Many awesome features were revealed during the event. iPhone 4′s design is unique and brand new, compared to iPhone, iPhone 3G and 3GS.

iPhone 4 is the thinnest iPhone ever! It’s also made of stainless steel! The glass is scratch resistant and crystal clear to produce the highest optical quality. It has a front camera for Video Chat using iChat

iPhone 4 has a 3.5 inch retina display, 960 x 640 pixels (that’s 4x more than the previous iPhone), its display has 326 pixels per inch, 800:1 contrast ratio, and has IP technology for superb color and wide angle viewing.

It has a 5 mega-pixel camera which can digitally zoom 5x. iPhone 4 is powered by the A4 processor. Its speed is unmatched compared to the previous iPhone of course.

iPhone 4′s battery life is also improved! 7 hours of 3G talk, 6 hours 3G browsing, 10 hours Wi-Fi browsing, 10 hours music, 40 hours of music, and 300 hours in standby mode.

Its capacity is up to 32GB. It’s a quad band HSDPA / HSUPA phone with dual microphones and 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Another cool thing about iPhone 4 is it has a Gyro-accelerometer, which provides 6-axis motion sensing! Oh wow!

It can record 720p HD videos at 30 frames per second. You can just tap it to focus and it has video-editing capabilities. iMovie is now available in all iPhones, including the old ones. Just upgrade your OS to iOS4.

Not all features are available in the old iPhone, but you can avail some of the new features of the iPhone 4 if you upgrade to iOS4. The upgrade is free and will be released on June 21, 2010.

iPhone 4 has also multitasking capability, which is another awesome addition to the iPhone features.

Price and availability of iPhone 4 is also announced. It comes in two colors, the black and white. Price is $199 USD for the 16GB model, and $299 USD for the 32GB model. Pre-orders of iPhone will start a week from now.

Prime Minister Hun Sen contracted the A(H1N1) influenza virus late last week, and five other government officials – including a deputy prime minister and two senior ministers – have since exhibited signs of it, according to a statement issued Tuesday by Health Minister Mam Bunheng.

According to the statement, Hun Sen was likely exposed to the virus, commonly known as swine flu, during or immediately after a meeting at the Council of Ministers last Friday.

He has since received treatment from “very professional Cambodian doctors”, and “the health of Samdech is recovering”, the statement reads.

It goes on to say that tests conducted on all officials who attended Friday’s meeting have revealed “the positive sign of AH1N1” in five officials: deputy prime minister Yim Chhai Ly, senior ministers Chhay Than and Tao Seng Hour and officials Kim Ith and Ith Mith.

The virus caused Hun Sen to miss Monday’s celebrations marking the 59th anniversary of the Cambodian People’s Party, and “some programmes of Samdech were also cancelled”, according to the statement.

Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said Tuesday that he could not provide any information beyond what was included in the statement.
