Does the Nike Sport Kit work with the iPhone 3G?

I read 3 different answers for this question -
a flat out No,
one answer stated a conversation with Apple who said it only worked with the 3GS,
and a Yes if the iPhone 3G has the 3.0 update.

So which is it?

    As far as I know, the iPhone 3G does not have the hardware necessary to support the 3G. This hardware is an RFID chip, and the 3GS comes with this chip. The purpose of the dongle, however, is to act as the RFID chip. The iPhone 3G does not support the dongle accessory, so you're out of luck. I am looking for an answer myself, but this is what I have found out from my research. I hope that helps.
