iPhone 3G performance with iOS 4.2: much improved

iPhone 3G owners have had a rough time lately. First, they missed out on some of the best new features iOS 4 had to offer. Then, the watered down version of iOS 4 they finally got their hands on slowed performance to a near-crawl in most cases.

It’s been widely assumed that Apple will start to roll out their FaceTime real-time communication protocol to more and more of their mobile devices (and possibly their computers), but until now, we’ve been in the dark on how this will actually work. After all, there are no phone numbers to call on an iPod touch or iPad. Here is how we have been told FaceTime will work on non-iPhone devices: More →
