    I don't think the 3G has an oleophobic screen, I think the 3G was the first one to have one.

    Not an oleophobic screen.

    But it certainly has that different feeling to it

    Yeah, the 3G definitely has an oleophobic screen, have a look at the tech specs.

    You do know that he's talking about the Ipod touch (3rd gen) right? Just to make it clear

    Yes. He is saying that while the iPhone 3GS has one, the 3G iPod touch does not.

    But it really isn't a big deal. Also, don't confuse OLED with Oleophobic. BIG difference.

    ^^ its like a coating on the screen that doesnt hold on to fingerprints.

    so the screen stays cleaner

    Apparently it helps oil from your fingers not get on the screen as much...

    Here Billy Nye can explain it much better
