The hardware in the 8GB iPod Touch 3rd generation is actually the same as the 8GB iPod Touch 2nd generation. The only difference between the 2nd and '3rd gen' for the 8GB model is the '3rd gen' comes with the iPhone OS3 software.
iPhone OS 4 will work with this device, but it won't have multitasking.
iPod 1st Gen Devices: iPhone OS 3
iPod 2nd Gen Devices: iPhone OS 4 - No multitasking
iPod 3rd Gen, 8GB Model: iPhone OS 4 - No multitasking
iPod 3rd Gen, 32GB & 64GB Models: iPhone OS 4
