    First Look Apple's much-vaunted iOS 4 arrived Monday morning a few minutes after 10am Pacific time, and nearly an hour and a half later, we were finally able to complete downloading and installing Cupertino's latest and greatest mobile OS onto our iPhone 3GS.

    Were its marquee features worth the wait — meaning both the 10-plus weeks since it was announced on April 8 (and renamed on June 7) and the painfully long installation time?

    Yes and no. We first took a look at multitasking and the new folder interface, and the "no" part of our answer has more to do with third-party developers than it does with Apple.

    Remember that multitasking — one of, if not the, most anticipated features of iOS 4 — is app-specific, meaning that developers need to add multitasking capability to their apps before users can take advantage of this new feature.

      Im not even sure why im installing it on my 3g
      i think the only reason is 'because i'm a bloody geek'

      i get no ibooks, no multitasking, not even backgrounds on pages!!!
      and apparently it will slow my phone down even more..
      and takes over 2 hours to install (had to cancel earlier to head to a client site) *yawn*
      oh well, something to keep me occupied till Thursday!!!
