iPhone 3G and no Multitasking: Upgrade to 4G?

By Alan Ng - Apr 8, 2010

Apple left it until the end of their event today to reveal the most disappointing aspect of their iPhone OS 4.0 unveil – owners of the iPhone 3G will not be able to use the new multitasking features that were announced.

Apple announced some pretty impressive features during the event, with key additions including full multitasking, Game Center, Folders and iAds.

iPhone owners will also be very pleased to know that they’ll finally be able to use custom wallpapers on their iPhones, while the Game Center and Apple’s achievements system will give gamers a good reason to treat the iPhone / iPad as a serious gaming platform.

But where does this leave iPhone 3G owners? Apple states that, while you will get ‘many’ features of iPhone OS 4.0, multitasking will not be one of them. How does this make you feel, 3G owners?

Will you now move over to another carrier, or stick with Apple and upgrade to the 3GS or iPhone 4G? Leave us a comment below.
