iPhone 4 not working blue screen of death? :-(

So i picked up my iphone 4 and pushed the home button nothing came up, i was sure i left it turned on but then i pushed the power button and it didn't turn on and so i went online and googled it and held down the home and power button for 10 seconds to reset it. It turned on for 15 seconds and worked fine then flashed a blue screen and turned off and now when i turn it on its stuck at the apple logo with broken apples half showing up for a second and changing back to apple logo split in half. I can't even turn it off to reset it, What do i do?

Put the iPhone into DFU mode and restore.

Sorry to hear that.
I would just take it back and get a refund or get a new one ordered.

Yeah bring that back, that's simply a faulty one. Isn't the Apple Store still open in BC? Run!!

wish i could im and hour and half from the apple store but if it does it again im restoring it and if its still doesn't solve it, its back to fido but too bad shipments don't come in till 3 weeks now. Im defiantly getting the extended warranty from fido now $120.00 will be worth a broken, lost or stolen iphone.

Oh man... well let us know if the restore fixes it, but it sounds like a hardware issue. I know this is just me, but I'd be finding a way to get to the Apple Store, call AppleCare beforehand and try to schedule something when you know a replacement will be there.
