iPhones running iOS 3.1.3 or earlier cannot access the App Store, no comment from Apple yet

I bet it's the former...
Another dirty trick to force anyone with an iPhone 2G to upgrade.

iphone is more fragmented than android devices

It might not be true due to the fact that Apple is just slapping version numbers onto their devices without actually receiving the full benefits of that version.

I tried right away when I saw this article online on my old iPhone 2G, and yes, AppStore no longer works on my device. I guess it's a closing time for iOS 3.1.3, and my iPhone as well...

As far as I know (and I could be wrong) all Android phones still have access to the market...

iTunes, the most annoying program I've ever used is still there for them to download apps from.

Apple commented on this subject:
"Update to a new iphone and you wouldn't have this issue."

first they rolled out a software update that bricked up the old phones. then just for those who still didnt upgrade (like my gf) they did this as an added measure.
way to go apple. sneaky little angel of a company you... a devil in sheeps clothing.

I think if your iPhone is still running 3.1.3 you need a new phone.

is weird that they talk about Apple wanting to upgrade when they only released ONE model a year as opposed..hmmm lets just say Robo ( dont want to ignite a fire) thats releases a new model every 2 weeks ( by the time you read my comment a new "robo" handset has been relased)... bottom line Apple is the best on upgrades thats why they released a redesign every 2 years...
