    Here is what we know
    Are the 2G and 3G iPod Touches the same?
    The iPod Touch 8GB 3G is identical to the 8GB 2G physically and in all aspects of the hardware except for a decrease in battery life, which is weird but whatever

    Does the 3G come with the mic and remote headsets?
    No the 8GB 3G comes with the standard headsets like all older iPod Models

    What firmware comes with the 3G?
    It come OTB with 3.1.1

    Is it jailbreakable?
    Not at the moment it is not. The Dev Team has said that because it comes with 3.1.1 it can not be jailbroken with their JB at the time being. However, the greenpoison jailbreak from King Chronic will allow it to be jailbroken at a date TBD.

    Can I downgrade to 3.0 to jailbreak it?
    No the iPod will reject all software prior to 3.1.1 and it cannot be pwned for the time being.

    What is the actual difference then between the 2G and 3G?
    Basically, nothing. It has 6 hours less battery according to Apple and the price has been cut. Those are the only OTB differences. Also, as mentioned to can not be jailbroken at the moment do to the OTB firmware.

    Feel free to ask any other 8GB 2G vs. 3G questions in here so the forums aren't cluttered

    Not a decrease in battery, a decrease in quoted battery life.

    3g's also have OpenGL 2 support and voice control. Plus there is an accessibility menu in settings. But otherwise they are pretty much the same.

    how can you tell the 8GB 3G and 8GB 2g apart? From the serial number? Or from the box. Someone wants to sell me a new 8GB but doestn know if its 3G or 2G. I want 2G of course
