    I saw a post in the keynote forum that said that 3.0 firmware is only for 2G Touches. Is this true?

    Yes it'll still work for the 1G. But it won't have a lot of the features that are only for the 2G because of hardware.

    So, really, even though it will work, there's not a lot of reason to upgrade?

    If most of the features are going to be disabled anyway, is there any point to get 3.0?

    Or, should I just sell my 1G and upgrade to a 2G?

    You could do that. I plan on getting a new iPod touch (Assuming a new one is announced).

    Any sort of speaker or input stuff will be disabled too.

    Plus, any accessories that will require the third input connection won't work.
