iPhone OS 4 Compatibility
iPhone OS 4 will work with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and the second- and third-generation iPod touch this summer, and with iPad in the fall. Not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking is available only with iPhone 3GS and the third-generation iPod touch (32GB and 64GB models from late 2009).

And they did drop the price by 13-14% when the newer iPods came out. ($229 -> $199) I certainly wouldn't expect anything "better" for less money, only to spend less money. And it's not like they're taking features away, like I said.
256MB in the iPad is a whole other issue - that thing should have 512MB regardless and it doesn't.

Ehh, differences between the pre and pre plus are miniscule, in most day to day usage you can't tell the difference (well except one has a button). While it might be a different model, the usage happens to be the exact same. Nes/S Nes where vastly different in graphics (and even the architecture was different). Sure I can open all 27 programs on the launcher page with the pre plus (4 3d games, 2d games, and various utilities), but that not exactly normal usage.

WUUUUUTTTT! so how much RAM does the iPhone 3gs have? (heh I have one and never really bothered with the tech stats)

You probably should do the same - considering your device was designed and released almost 2 years ago, it's reasonable to expect (in the mobile world) that at some point your hardware won't do everything the OS can do.
