The folks at TechnoBuffalo have played around with iPhone 4.0 beta for a while and provide an excellent glimpse into some of the OS’s best features:
Among the highlights:
- Multitasking: Multiple applications can now be opened at once.
- Camera zoom
- Folders: You can group applications into specific folders to conserve page space.
- Background photos: You can change the background for the app pages as well as the main page.
The testers also note that iPhone 4.0 beta runs a bit more smoothly than 3.0 did out of the gate. Unfortunately, the multitasking features are available only for the iPhone 3GS.
Guess it’s time for me to upgrade that 1st generation iPhone….
