    How to identify a 3rd generation 32 GB iPod Touch without unboxing??

    Hello guys!!

    I decided to buy a new 3rd-generation iPod Touch.

    Since there are two models of the 32 gigas iPod touch, which are the 2nd generation and 3rd generation models, I am really confused about how to identify the 3rd generation model before buying it!!!

    Nothing is written on the box of the iPod Touch indicating that it's a 3rd generation one.

    I can't ask the seller to unbox the iPod and turn it on just to verify that it's a 3rd generation one.

    How can you tell, without opening the box, that it's definitely a 3rd generation iPod Touch ?

    I want to make sure that I will buy a 3rd generation 32 gigas iPod rather than a 2nd generation one.

    I live in Egypt, that's why we may still receive older models of iPOd touch although they are no longer sold in the U.S.

    I would be so garteful, if anyone uploaded a picture showing the box of the 32 gigas iPod Touch 3G.

    Thank you in advance.

    The stores now onyl sell 3G ipods, they only sell 2G when they have a sign up. Also you can read the box and see whats inside and read if it has a headphones with remote and mic, that verifies its a 3G(voice control)

    All 32 GB iPods you purchase new are 3rd generation iPod touches.

    Actually,I live in Egypt, that's why we may still receive older models of iPOd touch although they are no longer sold in the U.S.

    What about the sticker on the bottom of the box? Does it say anything?

    Serial number??

    You can identify it the way I did it: look for the "voice memos" icon in the screen's sticker.

    If it does have it, its a 3g.

    The 2nd generation iPod touch has the Voice Memos application.
