    Hello all,

    I have always had a Zune since they first came out. However, I am sick and tired of all of the problems I have had with my devices over the years and I am annoyed that Zune wants me to pay them $170 for them to fix my Zune (which is less than a year old).

    So anyways, I am ready to purchase an iPod touch 32gb. My only question is, is it worth it to buy a 3gen now? Or should I wait to see if the 4gen will be coming out this fall?

    Spend some time getting some music on your iTunes account so you won't be music-less D:

    Thanks. I haven't really followed Apple in the past... is it likely the 4th gen will be released in the next month or two?

    And yes, the music is the only thing I will miss about my Zune. For $14/month you can download unlimited music but once you close the account, the music is no longer useable. And cannot be transferred to an ipod. Oh well...

    It will most likely be released within the next 2 months.

    I wouldn't pay $14 a month for music.. Seems like a bit of a gip!

    Isn't iTunes $0.99 a song? That would only be 14 songs a month then for the same price where as before I was downloading multiple albums and singles, probably 20-50 songs a month.

    But either way, iTunes has so much more than Zune probably ever will, so giving losing my monthly subscription seems like a small price to pay for better quality and service.

    And looks like I will be waiting. Haha I am stuck with a Zune 8gb until I get the iPod then, since my 32gb just decided to die. A bit lame, but it will work for now.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Me personally, I'd get one now. But since you're new I'd wait. As you probably have no idea about jailbreaking and such.

    I remember having zunes....good times. But that zune software SUCKS. I will never go back.

    I think it'd be a waste to get an iPod Touch right now, the 4G is coming out really soon and the 3G will be completely outdated (thanks Apple). It's probably going to have a few iPhone 4 features, but don't quote me on that.
