    iAd - now we know why they've added multitasking.

    its going to make my 3G one feel older. because some sites say only the 3GS and ipod touch 3rd Gen and above are getting the multitasking features.

    Yup, that's right. I'm not complaining, though. I'm quite happy to quit an app to open an new one. Not a problem. Besides, my contract ends in September so I'll either go to the 3GS or the (possible) new one out in summer.

    I think the most beneficial feature for me will be the ability to create folders on the Home Screen.

    That's something my G1 has been able to do since it's birth years ago! Wonder what else my phone can do that yours can't.....

    I'm not an impatient person so don't mind waiting for these things... plus, I'm not in competition with anyone to see who has the best phone. At the end of the day, it's making life easier. Don't give a hoot what anyone else has.

    Shame you need the 3GS to multitask but that said, I've lived without it, so I'm sure I can continue rather than spend hundreds on a new iPhone.

    My thoughts exactly. It's not like I've been cursing my iPhone since I bought it because it couldn't multitask. If I needed multitasking, I'd have bought another phone. Happy to wait

    Multiple Exchange accounts is nice though. Unless you need an iPhone 3GS++ to run that too.

    So you're running it on a 3G? What exactly is and isn't supported then DanW?
