Another Steve Jobs Email: Apple To Drop Support For The First-Generation iPhone

I’m starting to think Steve Jobs is getting a real kick out of replying to random customers’ emails and watching the blogosphere go nuts over it. The Apple CEO has now apparently replied to a user’s question about future support for the first-gen iPhone (2G), MacStories reports.

The customer, an unidentified German that goes by the name ‘Niko’, sent Jobs the following email over the weekend:

Hey Steve!
Is Apple supporting/updating the iPhone 2G in the Future?

Cheers Niko

Sent from my iPhone

To which Jobs, in his usual style, responded:

Sorry, no.

So there you have it folks – better upgrade your phone. Even if this turns out to be a hoax.
