iPod Touch 3G 32gb getting multitasking?
hey...this is really bothering me...i know that the iPod touch 3g 32gb has the same if not faster processor than the 3gs which is also getting multitasking but most of the sites i visit say noting about the iPod touch getting iOS 4 at all, however after some more looking i did find a few places that said i would be getting it and for free this time...however they failed to mention anything on multitasking for ipods, even though they clearly have the hardware!

They didn't say anything about the iPod touch getting multitasking. It will get OS 4 for free, but no conformation on multitasking. I saw some chart some where that said the iPod touch won't get all of the features, along with the iPhone 3G. Multitasking might be one of those features.
We'll just have to wait until they confirm it.

If you can see at the Apple Site, they say: "Not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking, custom wallpaper and Bluetooth keyboard support are available only with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the third-generation iPod touch (32GB and 64GB models from late 2009)." You can read it at the very botom of the page with information about iOS 4.
If you don't believe me, see: apple.com/ipodtouch/ios4-software-update.html

I'm pretty sure the second and third generation iPod touch will have multitasking. They excluded the first generation which led me to think that was done because of multitasking. The second generation iPod Touch was actually faster than the 3G so it only makes sense that it would get iOS4.

Apple isn't evil or anything, but they also aren't going to support old devices forever. They can say "hardware limitation" all they want, but it's really that the hardware is old, and they need people to buy a new device. It's been 3 freaking years already since the first iPhone's release. It's not like Apple's support for the first gen iPhone has been short! It's been longer than any other company for any cellphone, ever. By far!
i agree with jellotime91 completely...apple cant support those devices forever or they wouldnt make any money...and somewhere in the contract when buying an iphone says you get 2 years free upgrades...then rather than pay for them...you dont get any at all i guess...
on the matter of speed and hardware...the ipod touch has always been speed king (except for that 3 month period between the 3gs and the ipt 3g....) but all 1g and 2g devices and the ipt 3g bgb run the same processor (~400 mhz i think) and the same 128 mb ram...with the 3gs and ipt 3g 32 and 64 gb they doubled that to ~800 mhz and 256 mb ram...and the iphone 4 will have the A4 SOC (hopefully 1GHZ and 512 RAM like on the prototype) for buttery smooth multitasking...apple thinks that this is the requirement for smooth multitasking, having used backgrounder on all 2g and 3g devices i can vouch for this...when multitasking on old hardware, the device heats up and is reallly slow so its better not to have it at all...but the iphone 3g not being able to get wallpapers is just bs imo.....
anyway this is just what ive learned from lots of forums and articles all over the internet...

Here we are, just about a year later. My iPod 3g, version 4.3.4 is humming along quite nicely, even doing multi tasking. The one thing it does not have is a camera. Since the 4g iPod supposedly had a crappy still camera, I am waiting for the next iteration of the iPod touch.

My goal is to combine my three units (camera, cell and PDA) into just one. I like to take good photos, better than cell phone shots. I shoot hi-res pix to keep. If and when I share, I can always compress them. So I carry a 10MP Nikon, my Motorola Razr and iPod touch with me at all times. The optimal answer that I have in mind is the T-Mobile GSM iPhone without contract.. Failing that, my Razr plus iPod touch with a good camera. Now I ask you, is that too much to hope for? Waiting for September ...

Sooner or later the OS will require heavier internals of a phone. Its just the way technology moves. Unless you just don't want any cool upgrades to the OS, so that its compatible with all versions of the phone.
All OS' get fragmented and left behind at some point.
Either way, i have my 3rd gen, 32gb right next to me. I have no problems what so ever multitasking. If you having problems i would either suggest looking for a upgrade or restoring the iPod.
