    iPhone 3G, iOS 4, and you — what’s missing (spoiler: multitasking)

    digg_url = 'http://digg.com/apple/iPhone_3G_iOS_4_and_you_what_s_missing'; While iOS 4 is delivering on every promise for the iPhone 3GS users out there, as we were all told up front, the iPhone 3G would be missing some of those touted new features. Granted, we knew such disparities would exist but were never given the finer details. Now that the final build is percolating through the internet, we decided to take a look at what features are and aren't working on the earlier year's model.

    What's there
    • Folders
    • Threaded mail
    • iTunes playlist creation / editing
    • 5x digital zoom: just tap on the display near the capture button, but be warned, it doesn't paint a pretty picture
    • iBooks: we were having issues with the earlier build, but it seems to be running fine after today's official download -- PDFs work, too.
    • Photos: you can now sort by albums, events, faces, and places
    • Game Center: the icon is present, but as of this writing we're unable to connect to the servers. (Update: a number of readers saying it didn't come with today's download. We nabbed ours as a gold build, which might explain the discrepancy despite still being considered "up to date" by iTunes.)
    • Spell check has been updated
