No. It's like trying to put win7 on the first computer, you can complain all ya want, but it simply can't handle it. Period.

The 1st gen iPod touch and original iPhone use essentially the same hardware as the iPhone 3G. There may be technical reasons I'm not aware of, but this seems to be more of a business decision.

I think it is more a business matter, so people get new hardware...

It's not bussiness. It's the power behind each unit. Plus the 1st gen stuff probably is running out of full charges to handle battery:

it's probably both. the ipod 1st gen could probably run it, but with a shortened battery life and lag.

That was my point. I couldn't have thought how to put it clearly.

Considering Apple left out multitasking for the 3G and the 2nd Gen iPod Touch, they could have just as easily did that for the 1st Gen iPod Touch and the original iPhone. I'm guessing this was a business matter.
