    Gamecenter, newer apps support, mulitasking/folders (compared to 3.1.3), apple claims speed bump (compared to 4.0).

    The speed bump was only intended for iPhone 3G users. I'm not sure if they were able to streamline 4.1 much further than it already is. From a developer's point of view, apple really has streamlined the OS; for example many of the SpringBoard.app UI elements have been moved to the system cache. Even more interesting, no longer is there a cache for the keyboard, UI elements, exe (they're all grouped together). Does that translate to more speed? No not really because they're constantly adding features that will not be uniformly used by all users. I for one will never use game center because I am not a fan of games on iOS.

    I have to respectfully disagree. The only thing that 3.1.3 has over 4.X is that you can theme keyboards on 3.1.3 with iKeyEx. Everything else can be themed (except Youtube.app and Cydia.app due to runtime technical difficulties).

    It really depends on what model you are using, for example my iPod Touch 2G is better with 3.1.3 than 4.0 but once a jailbreak is available for the mc model i will move to 4.1 for sure.

    What i should of said is it's easier, not better. One thing i dont like about 4.x is that you have to change the shadow file for when the icon is pressed, and it limits you to having all same sized icons
