It’s not true multi-tasking. If apps freeze whilst another apps in use than that's not considered true multi-tasking. True multi-tasking is when several apps run simultaneously. Sorry iPhone fans, but you're getting ripped :$
Jailbreak is still much more useful than 4
any chances to install this upgrade on iphone 2G !??
To be honest to you
i cant live without installous @cydia
app developer. I dont want to pay a single cent to you
lol. I can somewhat multi-task now. Is it 2010? or 2000? GSMARENA is another big joke - putting this crap on their news.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2010Most phones have internet radio but they cost. Most phones also have an analoge radio as it is... moreYou are so right
analog fm radio is power friendly
i prediction that next iphone is still have the same design as iphone 3gs , or may be some very small chnages
no video calling, sure they need mirror
apple is losing market share now
now the focus is on meego and s3 phone with multoitouch and new ui
While the improvements are all welcome, I think apple need to apply fundamental changes to the way the stale OS works (UI).
Apple need to introduce widgets, and social network integration (on the springboard). Also simply adding support for wallpapers seems a little underwhelming and consumers should be able to customize other areas of the UI (Dock etc).
As an iphone user I find it frustrating that apple refuse to adopt some of the innovations that google, HTC and jail breaking offer.
It seems that apple simply 'Jazz up' simple improvements so that we feel privileged to finally receive functionality that other manufacturers have been providing for years (3.2MP camera, Video recording, MMS, Wallpapers, multi tasking etc)
The iphone is great and was a revolution when it was released however it can be so much more. Why do Apple insist on deliberately holding back there products functionality for months / years at the expense of their loyal following? Apple's income from app store, handset sales alone suggests that they could reward consumers with an OS that truly does take advantage of the hardwares capabilities (especially considering the handset price and costly tariffs.)
Surely Apple should recognize that consumers who are investing heavily in a product, deserve the right to take full advantage of their hardware.

Who are you? Captain Obvious?
Compare price tags of Nokia and Apple?
It's DUMB obvious that all Nokia phones outsells both of the TWO Apple phones.
Compare their prices...

But to all those who don't want to jailbreak your devices (me for exemple) this new OS (4.0) is really awesome.
I've jailbreaked my 3GS once, and don't think it worth...
It overheated, and drains the battery even faster.
So I restored my device, removing the jailbreaking.
But with this new OS, man... AWESOME!
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2010"real bluetooth"? divx/xvid support?Samsung, nokia, blackberry htc, motorola, lg, all have these technology for over 7 Years.
Apple has been left in the dust once again.
"real bluetooth"? divx/xvid support?
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2010Man have you ever tried a symbian, perhaps it was broken or one of those chinese clones. Becau... moreI have used symbian from nokia 6600,7610,n73,e90,n95,e71 and 5800,and in my honest opinion and you can see i'm an experienced symbian user and these devices are generally great with few acceptable bugs which were fixed with few firmware updates,But the nokia 5800 has many faults its ui is very inconsistent sometimes i dont know when to double tap or to single tap in menus,with its new firmware i know they have added kinetic scrolling but its motion is very poor in the web browser,also the phone must hang or restart atleast twice a day and its touch screen isn't as responsive as the iphone's screen and under sunlight i doubt if u can see anything. Nokia 5800 is a multimedia device but you can never have half the fun i'm having with my iphone
Android is future now, iPhone's OS nothing is great in this update.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2010Yesss!! Finally multitasking is making it to iphone, well worth the wait, no more beating arou... morethe 3G doesn't have enough ram memory to load multiple apps, 128mb compare to 256mb on the 3GS, plus the 3Gs have a better CPU!
Yesss!! Finally multitasking is making it to iphone, well worth the wait, no more beating around the bush or long talks!! But why is iphone 3g incompatible??
Honestly most of these new features have been in cydia for the longest time. These features are laughable except the whole game networking deal, that's nice. I guess these new features are for the people who don't jailbreak their iPhones. Well I'll wait and see what the new iPhone comes out with this summer in terms of better hardware specs and maybe better software. If the new iPhone isn't good, I'm going back to htc again.
you can tel whatever you want but iPhone still rules!:)
no other phone is so easy and friendly to use as iphone, no other phone gives that pleasure of using it, it's like comparing driving Mercedes/Lexus with driving Ford/Opel, simple as that :))
True, the iphone with a good data plan is excellent. But I'm sure that there are other phones that come with this deal surely?
Mine's "unlimited" so I can surf when i'm not using wifi, and although the browser is very good, Opera would be an added bonus.
