Better performance on the 3G is supposed to be one of the "bug fixes" in 4.1.

I think what ever the final version of iOS 4 will be the last for the 3G phones though.

So does iOS4.1 really support iPhone 3G? Like many, I 'upgraded' to 4.0, my phone slowed to an unusable crawl, and I followed your instructions to get back to 3.1.3. Is Steve now saying it's safe to go 4.1? And is he right?

Poppa, I experienced the same as you with my 3G. I have to believe that 4.1 would still be slow on a 3G, since it was designed with the A4 processor in mind...which the 3G does not have.

The iPod touch has WiFi, two cameras, a gazillion other features, and they couldn't spend $0.25 to add an FM chip? I hate to tell Apple, but not every square inch of the planet is covered with WiFi and it is nice to be able to get some different music, news, weather, etc... So now I have to carry a separate radio, great. Well at least I can leave my camera home when I'm hiking...as long as I like fuzzy photos since they put a .7 MP camera on it. It seems to me they cut some corners on features which is going to create a lot of bad publicity.
