    Compared to first-generation iPod touch, how's the performance of an iPhone 3G?

    The performance is better on the 3G compared to the 1G Touch.

    It came out a while after.
    The 2G (iPod) beats the 3G, though.

    You won't notice any difference.

    no, the "3G" is the internet speed, not phone speed

    so ya no it will not make the apps faser they will DOWNLOAD faster- but no run faster. i think it runs funst enough! =)hope this helps

    I'm fairly certain that the 2G iPod touch is the only device that's faster than the rest -- the iPhone 3G is the same speed as the 1G iPod touch.

    I will add my 2 cents...

    My wife has a 3g Iphone and I have a 2g..

    The load times are a bit faster on the 3g, and the menus are a bit snappier as well, but the apps are designed to run at the same speed.

    The 2g Touch is also very smooth with the menus and load times, but again, apps will run the same.

    You'll notice a difference in the performance on 3D games mostly, the 2G iPod is the fastest, as it has the same processor speed as the 3G, but it doesn't have processes like Phone running in the background. Next is the 3G, next is the iPhone 2G, and lastly the iPod 1G.

    For apps that don't require a lot of processing, all of them should run at very similar speeds.

    All the devices (apart from the iPod Touch 2G) have a 400mhz processor. The 2G has a 500mhz processor.
