    Call the new iPod Touch "iPod Touch 3G" is a bit of an overstatement. We should call it the 2.5G instead.

    Remember those click-wheel iPods who have 5G and 5.5G? The only differences between the 5G and 5.5G were:

    -Improved video battery life and brighter screen
    -Gapless playback to the masses
    -New features such as instant search and enhanced games

    Sounds like the same applies to the touch except replace the first bullet with "Improved processor and graphics", replace the third bullet with "New Voice control and other features"

    When they bumped up to the 1g 32 gb, it wasn't a named event. Granted, this processor and voice control chips are upgrades, but it is pretty weak.

    2.1G really is appropriate... A true-blue 3G upgrade will include, among other things, that long awaited camera and video recording!

    I know. If they really wanted to only just be able to call it the 3G then they should have added a better speaker and improved battery
