Browsing the apple store I have noticed that some products only have Iphone listed as compatible and not Iphone 3G. Is there a major difference between the two phone models?

For example would this car charger work with the Iphone 3G?

Yes that charger will work. The things you should worry about are cases, the 3G doesn't fit in my Otterbox, and docking stations, the 3G doesn't fit in my iPhone 1 charging dock.

Perhaps, but I have a Griffin car charger that was able to charge my 1st gen iPhone, but won't charge the 3G. Different popup message saying it won't charge.

Now I have to wait for more accessories to trickle in. The iPhone's been out over a year, and I've yet to see an accessory that will both charge the iPhone and provide AUX in, that truly works properly.

I forgot where but I did hear(tv) or read(web) that apple was going to release a update to correct the issue I remember it was in the context of a person complaining that the 3G would not charge or play in the bose speaker system that the 1st gen iphone did.
