    When was the second-generation iPod touch announced?
    The second generation iPod touch was announced during the "Let's Rock" event held on September 9th, 2008. The event took place in San Francisco, California. Steve Jobs previewed the new iPod touch at the event.

    Where can I purchase a 2nd-generation iPod touch?
    The 2nd-generation iPod touch is available for purchase through the Apple Online Store or Amazon.com as well as your local Apple Retail Store. Alternatively, stores such as Best Buy/Future Shop/Circuit City will carry the 2nd-generation iPod touch beginning on Friday, September 19th, 2008. (There is a 30-day refund policy when purchasing online, although there is a 10% restocking fee.)

    What's the difference between iPod touch V2 and iPod touch 2nd-Gen?
    Some referred to the original iPod touch including the January App Pack as the "V2" iPod touch, although it is simply the iPod touch with the five applications included. On the other hand, the 2nd-Gen iPod touch is a brand new device, rather than software.

    Does the 2nd-gen iPod touch include a camera?
    No.

    Will Apple do a trade-in on the 1st-gen iPod touch?

    No, although certain retailers such as Circuit City offer a trade-in value depending on the quality of the 1st-gen iPod touch you are trading in.

    What is the warranty policy on the 2nd-gen iPod touch?
    1 year through Apple. Extended AppleCare warranty is available.

    Which firmware version is preloaded on the 2nd-gen iPod touch?
    Firmware 2.1.1.

    Is the 2nd-gen iPod touch jailbroken?
    No.

    Will 1st-gen iPod touch cases work with the 2nd-gen iPod touch?
    No.

    This reiterates the information into one tidy thread, and also provides many questions such as the jailbreak status, firmware, among others. Also, Apple missed out on a few of the things included "in box" and I've also added some features that Apple didn't point out.

    Nevertheless, you're entitled to your opinion, and this is mine.
