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?

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.
