iOS 4.3 Review

Sup dudes.

I'm on my way to New Orleans later today, so no time for a big post about Mario or Internet Explorer or whatever - I'm taking the lazy man's way out and linking to another something I wrote over at Anandtech last week - a review of iOS 4.3, the latest incremental update to Apple's phone and tablet operating system from last summer.

I've previously reviewed the major iOS 4 versions for this site - 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, and ancillary pieces about travelling with my iPhone and the Verizon version of Apple's handset.

iOS 4.3 brings a few nifty improvements, most prominent among them increased browsing speed in Safari, but it's not available for everyone. iOS 4 originally cut off owners of the original iPhone and first-generation iPod Touch from receiving updates, and iOS 4.3 adds the iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod Touch to that list.

Anyway, enjoy the review! I'm off to enjoy a much-needed vacation.
