(For those of you with iPhone4s (iOS4.1), the above pics were taken with and without HDR turned on. The left one with HDR and the right is the original.) Another pic after the jump.
That's a very substantial improvement, HDR. Looking forward to my own experimentation.

As far as I can tell (pinging @joshderr) these aren't really HDR as it was originally defined — combining translated UV and Infrared exposures with the “normal” exposure. It seems all Apple did was take three shots in succession at different exposures and merge them, which is HDR-like but isn't HDR.
HDR in digital photography is just that: combining frames of different exposures into one picture with the expanded luminance range of all of them.
Given the shallow dynamic range of a typical cell phone camera sensor, this is actually pretty slick. The only downside is that it appears it tone-compresses the picture back down into the final image, which tends to make it look washed-out a bit.
oh my god! nerd city! you guys need to get out of your moms' basements!
