    Yep, running it on a 3G and no multitasking on the 3G

    Get Googles Nexus One with true multisking

    The I-Phone only multitasks a few things like sound the rest is done with pause tasking. I am now glad I got a Google Nexus One last month from America as I was a bit worried the new I-Phone may have some killer specs when its comes out, but it doesn't even come close to googles phone, and I am not tied into any contract so my 10 per month contract for 300mins 300txts and unlimited internet mean I am quids in.

    So Dan, the 4.0 will give a 3G user like me a lovely new interface, folders and all the other jazz, just minus the multi-tasking?

    Oh and also, silly question, but would be awesome, can i now have a wallpaper behind my apps? i have seen alot of this in screenshots, but not sure if they are faked..

    well, in the apple video, Apple - QuickTime - April 2010 Apple Special Event

    It shows a wallpaper behind the apps, but im not sure if this will be one of the 3GS only features, or whether even Steve has jailbroken his iPhone!

    You can set an image as a background, not sure if you can select one of your own. A mate of mine is a developer and was showing it off in the pub last week.

    He's found quite a few problems though with the release he has so there's definately loads of fixing required.

    Yes most of the new features such as folders, and wallpaper (although that's not yet enabled for 3G users yet, awaiting the next release!), you can actually 'hack' the multitasking on the 3G by editing a file ... although i haven't done this yet.

    i've found a few bugs, music stops playing and won't start, alarm won't turn off, won't charge .. although all of these have been solved with a reboot
