    Hello. I have about US$ 400 to spend on an iPod touch. I'm wondering which of the following options you suggest I do:

    1. buy now a refurbished iPod touch 2nd generation from Apple Store (about $40 less than brand new versions), or

    2. buy now a brand new iPod touch 2nd generation, or

    3. wait until around September of the 3rd generation iPod touch.

    Wait.
    When it comes to Apple, you always wait.

    How much do you like the advantages of jailbreaking?

    If you really think you'll need jailbroken functionality (nobody really does, I personally enjoy it though) then you might just want to buy a 2G right now. Yeah, the 3G is coming up, but it might not ever be jailbroken*.

    * - I'm aware that this was said about the iPod touch 2G, but let's face it - won't Apple learn from their mistakes to make a much more impenetrable boot rom?

    We will see about the bootrom sooner or later

    But now lets see if the 3GS can be jailbroken first

    If you must buy a 2g, get a refurb.

    If you are patient enough to wait until September, I suggest you do so... Otherwise, like what solidness said, get a refurb or second-hand unit...
