    Apple said that iOS 4 will be out for the 3G, but not all features are supported. Most notably, multitasking isn’t supported in the 3G. You can see that right the bottom of the page http://www.apple.com/iphone/softwareupdate/
    The hardware inside the 3G is different than the 4 and 3GS. As a developer, I can tell you that there was a huge jump in processor power between the 3G and 3GS. So I can understand that the new iOS 4 has to take the slower processor of the 3G into account.

    Yes, iOS 4 will be released for iPhone 3G. I’ve been using the developer preview versions for a month or so. As explained in the previous comment, not all features (notably, multitasking and home screen backgrounds) are available.

    A warning though: I have found that iOS 4 slows the iPhone 3G down a _lot_. Be careful what you wish for.
