Apple today released the full video of Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, featuring the iPhone 4 as introduced by huckstermeister extraordinaire Steve Jobs.

The video lasts one hour, fifty-two minutes, and forty-six seconds — from the ovation as Jobs enters stage right to the crowd exiting to the strains of Louis Armstrong's "When You're Smiling" from Apple's new FaceTime commercial.

A few highlights:

  • 00:10:28 — Jobs describes how Apple is a champion of HTML5 open standards, how the App Store is a "curated platform", and what Apple's app-approval process is all about.
  • 00:27:22 — Jobs explains his version of the Android versus iPhone market share argument.
  • 00:30:15 — Jobs begins the introduction of the iPhone 4.
  • 00:39:48 — Jobs' comparative iPhone 3GS versus iPhone 4 demo is thwarted by recalitrant Wi-Fi.
  • 00:44:23 — Focusing of the A4 processor, "designed by our own team," and the new gyroscope, Jobs opens up the iPhone 4 to examine its innards.
  • 00:55:09 — Apple video god Randy Ubillos demos iMovie for iPhone.
  • 01:01:21 — Jobs explains why he wants everyone in the audience to turn off their demo-killing Wi-Fi.
  • 01:10:11 — Jobs mentions some of the "enterprise integration" improvements in iOS 4.
  • 01:18:34 — Jobs explains why and how the iAds program will put money in the pockets of developers.
  • 01:28:55 — "One more thing..." as Jobs demos FaceTime iPhone 4–to–iPhone 4 videoconferencing with Jonathan Ive.
  • 01:48:55 — Jobs waxes sincere and sentimental, sums up, thanks the troops, and says: "This is our new baby. I hope you love it as much as we do."

Even the CEO of the Decade is powerless when the demo gods strike

If you've never viewed a Jobsian keynote, we recommend that you carve out some time to watch this one — if only to see a master at work. ®
