    so , am new and all this and want to buy myself a ipod touch, and saw that there is a 3'rd gen now.

    and my question is , what is the diff. between these 2 ?

    i saw that the 2nd gen could play xvid , avi , divx .... and had better battery time, but thats all.

    would be kind if you could help me out.
    thanks.

    Here are the main differences.

    3rd Gen
    Voice Control (with inbuilt mic with stock earphones)
    Faster (due to having same hardware as the 3GS)
    Now a 64GB model and no longer a 16GB model.

    They are the main differences, otherwise nothing has really changed.

    Also note that the 8GB is the same as the 2nd gen 8GB. No new features.

    Faster as in the start up times for apps are faster and the touch will be more responsive. Also, the 3G Touch supports OpenGL ES, which will provide better 3D graphics for games.

    oooh ok ok ... hmm , but i dont want 8gb thats too little and 32 is too much , am just going to use it for when i travel , to watch a movie or something , and in my car for music ... !
    and sometimes use it as a "computer" , where Wifi is available.

    i only have 3.96gb music on my computer

    Once you start adding games, movies, and apps to your Touch, you will apprecaite having the extra storage. Since the 8 gb does not have the new processer, I would go with the 32 gb.
