UPDATE: The official iPhone 4 reviews are in! See what critics really think about Apple's new iPhone here.

iPhone 4 reviews are streaming in as tech bloggers post their first reactions to Apple's new iPhone.

Steve Jobs boldly claims his new gadget will "change everything--all over again." So will it?

Although they have mixed feelings about the phone's glass exterior, reviewers have thus far heaped praise on Apple's "totally new animal," which has been called "so thin it's kind of mind-boggling," "elegant," and even "sexy."

The iPhone 4 won't hit stores until June 24th--and we can expect a slew of new reviews then--but in the meantime, here's an early look at what techies are saying about Apple's new iPhone.

iPhone 4 is the "biggest upgrade since the iPhone 3G," remarks CNET reviewer Kent German:
On the whole, this iPhone 4 has us more excited than we were last year when the the 3GS was born. The new features, particularly those in the new operating system, are long overdue and we welcome any efforts to improve call quality (remember that it is a phone, after all).

While German was mostly pleased with the device, he did have some doubts about the phone's exterior:
It is shiny and beautiful, but the glass attracts smudges by the ton and durability remains a concern. Jobs said that glass better resists scratches, but we hope that the iPhone 4 will take a few drops to the floor without cracking. On the upside, it feels solid in the hand.
