no iphone 2G support
A costumer of Apple asked Steve Jobs one simple question via e-mail “Is Apple supporting/updating the iPhone 2G in the Future?”, and ofcourse Steve Jobs gave one simple answer “Sorry, no.”. So this confirms Apple will no longer be offering updates to the original 2007 iPhone 2G, including OS 4.0.

Does this mean Apple will charge us for iPhone OS 4.0 or just not provide it at all? What do you think?

    That stinks. I mean I have a 3GS. But if I still owned an iPhone 2G which is only 3 years old I would be quite annoyed with Apple.

    The guy who dresses Steve asked the question…?

    BTW – computer years are like dog years, so a 3 year old iPhone 2G is 21!

    Yes… but I am 26 and I´m OK :-).

    I have 3G, 3GS and 2G… and I will hate Apple, if the shoot down old 2G. 2G is same as 3G, so there is no HW limitation, it´s just about marketing and money.

    There is possibility, that new native 4.0 app will be not working on 3.0… that is suck. My 7 years old symbian Nokia can run most of today symbian app. And my 2 and 1/2 iPhone can´t?

    That was precisely my point above. The iphone 2g may be 3yrs old but there are other tech on the market that is much older that can still run newer software. Apple just wants iphone 2g owners to upgrade and make them more money.

    well supporting 3g but not the 2g is really funny because they are almost the same devices. apple first left 2g out of the mms game by saying lies about the hardware not supporting it (later, devs turned this feature on in the apple’s own OS). leaving 2g out of mms wasn’t enough for apple to sell new iphone’s i guess so now they leave the old customers (who got the phone in those worst days like no copy/paste nor exchange support). this act from apple is nothing but money greed if you ask me…
