I still don't get it. The iPhone 2G and 3G have exactly the same hardware (CPU speed, ram, chipset), the only difference is AGPS and 3G support on the 3g.. Why withold 4.0 from the 2g, but do give it to 3g?

Okay.. then why not make the 4.0 not for free but for a cost for the 3g and 3gs?

Heh sorry I should have clarified my last statement, I think they just really want to push people away from the iPhone 2G, and towards buying an iPhone 3G or preferably an iPhone 3GS. That's the only reason I can see for witholding 4.0 from the 2G. They probably should have done what they do with the iPod touches, and make the updates available for $10, instead of not making it available at all. Similar reasoning may have been behind not allowing multitasking on the 3G, so that people will be more inclined to buy the 3GS, but that could be a hardware issue as well. There were times when my (jailbroken)iPhone 3G would really drag if I had more than a couple programs running at a time.

If they wanted ppl to switch to newer phones - why have 4.0 on the 3g then? there are a lot more 3g users than 2g ones..

Why would anyone want an IPHONE 2G, slow as heck, phone?? No faster than my 400 Mhz processor TILT I (mod).

You do realize that the 3g has the exact same speed, do you? and the 3g still sells.

iPhone 3G has a 600 mhz processor while the 2G has a 412 mhz processor. I think a retarded monkey could tell you that those speeds aren't the same.

I stand corrected. I totally forgot there was a 3G and 3Gs.

lol.. you speak as if the 3g came out decades ago. and yes - the 3gs was the one with the improved specs.. but I don't recall anyone complaining about the speed of the 3g before then.
