    Hi,

    I noticed that the glass screen on my iPod touch (32GB) moves (probably 1mm or so downward) when I press it... it seems as though its not completely glued or attached to whatever its resting on.. the bottom section (around the home button and bottom corners) appear to have more play to it than the top of the glass (maybe .5mm of play)...


    It'd be great if you guys can check your iPods and let me know if you're seeing the same movement? (It's easier to see if you look at the edge where the glass meets the metal... and then press...)

    Sorry for sounding so paranoid, but if its a problem with my unit only, i'd like to return it for another one...

    i got one that did that, then went back to best buy and exchanged it because the power button was broken when i opened it. then this new one doesnt do that.

    my 1G is solid. Yet another example of decreased build quality on the 2G's. Heard of this, non functioning buttons, non-centered screens, Wi-Fi that doesn't work, and the ubiquitous lack of jailbreak.

    Mine moves just a bit also. I noticed this the day I got it while playing Tap Tap Revenge very intensely. Lol. It's not a big deal because it doesn't affect anything. If you don't think about it, it doesn't really even seem to be there.
