Spoofed Apple ad: iOS 4 running on an iPhone 3G

Here’s an entertaining look at the iPhone 3G trying desperately to run iOS 4. From what I’ve heard on the Twittersphere, this video is actually pretty realistic. I know that Joshua Schnell of Macgasm has been considering downgrading his 3G to 3.1.3, if he hasn’t done so already. If he was experiencing anything like what was displayed in this video, I sympathize.

    lol this is hilarious. this is exactly what my iPhone 3g was doing and it was a big part of why i upgraded to the iPhone 4

    I have a 3G, and that's pretty close to my experience at times. Since I went to all the trouble of foldering and whatnot, I don't think I'll downgrade. I'm eligible for an upgrade, but I'm still on the fence whether to switch to an Android phone.

    To be fair, I knew I wasn't going to get all the bells and whistles, but I didn't really think I would actually reduce performance on my phone.

    Spot on! Apple ruined my 3G.

    My iphone 3G does exactly the same things as this video. Also, my apps and safari crash all the time. I don't particularly want to keep my business with a company that makes it own products obsolete with software upgrades. When I got my iphone, there was nothing else out there like it. Now there are suitable alternatives. Apple should address this issue soon or risk losing a great number of customers..
