    you could always sell it if there is a new one with breathtaking features that are worth upgrading to. i personally dont see much else apple could improve on hardware wise, most of my gripes could be solved with a firmware update. the most they could do in my opinion would be a price drop and new colors, which doesn't matter much to me, cause i got mine for a good price, and you can buy a case or skin to get a different color

    I debated whether to wait till the new release or buy one now, and in the end, I bought one just this past week - refurbished via Apple Store for a great discount.

    The way I see it is that since the iPhone 3G (which is supposed to be the super phone) came out, we all realized that Apple didn't really improve much upon it as compared to the 2G version... and one would expect Apple to throw in everything and the kitchen sink to impress the world, and this is the best they could come up with...

    hence, they can't really come up with much else for the Touch... so for me, waiting wouldn't make any more sense anymore... I was disappointed with the 3G iPhone's capabilities, and I have very low expectations for the 2nd generation of the Touch...

    Hi,
    Wouldn't you expect a second gereration Touch based on the new iPhone platform? For example, hardware-wise the iPhone 3G vs the original 2G model is supposedly thinner with better battery power. True?

    So wouldn't we expect a new Touch based on the 3G hardware ?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    While there may be some benefits of waiting for the 2nd generation Touch, I don't see the benefits outweighing the great discounts offered right now.

    And in reading of all the battery problems that the 3G iPhone is having now, my confidence in improved battery power is very low...

    I would say that you should wait. With all theese rumors of a new iPod touch comming out Waiting for a month would make sense because it could have new features or there mightbe a price drop. Also if u wait till September to get it then there would be more usefull apps in the app store plus if there's a price drop then u can use that money to buy more apps. It's better to wait than regret later
