It appears that the iPod touch 2nd generation and iPhone 3G do not support Home Screen wallpapers even though images on Apple's sites say that they do. The images pertain to updates to iOS 4.2. They do still have the nifty selection of wallpapers, though they're only available on the lock screen.
The image errors appear on both the Apple USA and Apple Canada sites.
iPhone 3G users are mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore! Incensed over what they claim are “unsavory, dishonest and deceptive business practices” on Apple’s part by crippling their devices with the iOS 4 update.

When we heard we'd be plum left out of Game Center, well, that sucked pretty hard too. But, this, Cupertino? This is kicking us while we're down.
With the newly announced (but not yet released to the public) version of iOS, the iPhone 3G bugs have mostly been squashed. Apple made a point in saying that this forthcoming update (iOS 4.1) would alleviate some of the problems iPhone 3G owners had when first upgrading to iOS 4.0 a few months ago.

Well, Steve Jobs, the man himself, says an update that will fix sluggish performance should arrive soon.
