I lucky enough to have them all, and id agree the original 3G is now too slow. I keep it so I can test the worst case, but its slow.
If you have an original iPad however, Id just use that and compile the app as an iPhone only app to force it to emulate the iPhone.
Its almost identical in performance to the 4, while the 4s and iPad 2 are faster, but if you have something working well on the iPad then it will work ok on the others. Ive only tested on the iPod touch as its my nieces, but it seems very similar to the iPhone 4.
You can test the retina graphics in the simulator to make sure they lay out correctly, there is really no need to get another device.
Now Android is another story completely!
