    On Sunday I purchased a new 8GB 2G iPod Touch on Ebay. On Monday I discovered this forum, and found out about the upcoming 3G.

    So now I'm debating over whether to take advantage of the seller's return policy and return the 2G Touch, and then wait for the 3G in September.

    Pro's:

    - I would have the most recent, best model.
    - I would have something to look forward to, at a time when school is starting.
    - I would save money.
    - There would be less potential for regret in the long run.

    Con's:
    - I would have to wait three weeks.
    - I'm going on a week-long trip next Monday and an Ipod would be very nice to have.
    - I've already purchased accessories (a case and screen protectors) for the 2G.
    - I don't care at all about a camera or GPS (possible features on the 3G) as I already use a Blackberry Storm for those purposes.
    - There would be more hassle having to deal with the Ebay situation, etc.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I say return it and wait for the new one.
    If all the rumors are true, then you won't be dissapointed

    I would return it. Most likely, the case would fit, although if there was a camera, it would block it. The screen protectors would work. And the iPod touch 3G will probably be much faster than the 2G.

    I'd return and wait too. It suck's that you won't have an ipod for the trip but the pros out weigh the cons.

    Dont return it, instead, I'd do this:

    DFU Restore it to a clean slate. (3.0)
    Jailbreak it.
    Leave it.

    Now sell it on CraigsList

    Jailbroken iPod touch 2G's:
    8GB - 200-225$
    16GB - 300-330$
    32GB - 410-450$

    Sell it as new or return it.
    Believe me, you won't regret it, 3G will probably be much faster

    Thanks everyone! I've decided to return the 2G, and I'm selling the accessories on Ebay. After reading the replies here and doing further research (the Youtube speed comparison videos between the iPhone 3G and 3GS won me over), I think that I'm making the right decision. I'm still waiting to hear back from the seller I bought the 2G from, but if that doesn't work out I can always re-sell it new (Ebay is great

    Anyway, thanks again.
