First Official Thread of PGF?? :Q
[size=167]Devices/Specs[/size]( CPU speeds are factory underclocked)
iPhone 1st Gen CPU: 412 MHz RAM: 128mb
iPhone 3g CPU: 412 MHz RAM: 128mb
iPod Touch 1st gen CPU:400 MHz RAM 128mb
iPod Touch 2nd gen CPU:533MHZ RAM 128mb
Do iPod Touch users have to pay money for major firmwares??
Yes with the release of OS 3.0 all iPod Touch users will have to pay $9.95 for the OS upgrade. This is ONLY for major firmware advances .1 or .2 upgrades are free. It is free for iPhone users mainly because they pay a monthly service fee which Apple get’s a cut of.
Do games generally run better on iPod Touch 2nd Gen compared to iPhone???
Yes. This is due to the iPhone’s CPU being underclocked to 412MHZ while iPod Touch 2g was underclocked at 533MHZ. But many developers try to optimize for both platforms.
