    well, i called apple to ask if they call the new ipod touch
    a "3rd generation" and they said "yes" but 8gb is 2nd generation though.

    i asked them about "3rd generation" cases sold on best buy
    and if they know anything about why they had hole on the back.
    they said that they had no idea about that.

    also asked if they have any plans to release newer version of
    ipod touch any time soon and they said it usually comes out
    once a year so i said "o, so there gonna be no new version within a year?"
    they said, "i did not say that and i cannot answer that question"

    o well i don't know
    im tired of all this about 3g ....

    It is. Isn't it funny that as the idea of no camera sinks in, there are less posts about the *supposed* October 14 iPod touch?

    People thought up Oct. 14 because of the Best Buy deal. Like I said before, Jan-Feb seems more likely.

    If I own a 1g and I don't I would just wait until Oct 14 just to make sure they dont have anything new. If they don't pick up the new one. Its a world a difference the 1g to a 2 or late 2009 g IPOD touch!

    I would say September of next year. Honestly, why would Apple break tradition for a fringe (yes, we are a fringe of consumers; most don't know anywhere near as much about a product as we do, and they never knew that the possibility of a camera was there, so they couldn't care.) The iPod touch will sell regardless of the camera. Sure there might be some 2G users who would have upgrade specifically for the camera, but not many. Memory increase is different though. Honestly, I can't name anyone who would buy the device just for the camera. I can give you a handful of point-and-shoots that would perform spectacularly if you are wanting a camera.

    September the earliest. Because they update iPods on a yearly basis (increased storage dont count.)

    and even then, I still would not expect a camera, but its possible. a cam coming out on the touch in less than a year i consider impossible.

    Not sure why you consider it impossible, but ok.

    apple has never updated an ipod with a major feature in a matter of months after a previous generation.

    steve jobs also said the touch isn't going to have a camera because they arent marketing it as an iphone without the phone.

    it would piss off all the people who bought the current 3g, and they would have to possibly give out a rebate like they had to do with early iPhone buyers.

    these are just some of the reasons why i dont think its going to happen. definitely not this year, and probably not even next september.
