    My friend got an iPod Touch for his birthday 5 days ago, and it has 2.2.1 on it. It's brand new so I was wondering why it doesnt come preloaded with 3.0 on, because he doesnt want to have to pay and upgrade for a brand new device.

    So do they all come with 2.2.1? Or is it a special case?

    Thanks

    Its probably just what stock they have in the stores at the time of order. I guess when the warehouses empty what they have then they will get 3.0 and so on. Its the same for the PS3 really, they just have whatever was out at the time of dispatch.

    Nutronic is right.

    3.0 came out July 7th (i think), so usually stores will have it 3-6 months when they get new shipments.
    At MY local Best Buy, when my bro went to get his first iPod touch, they have a huge locked cabinet filled only with iPod touches.

    I would guess that when that whole thing emptied (theres a lot), they would then contact Apple and theyd send them new devices pre-loaded with 3.0

    But it might take a while before theyre all cleaned out....

    Just buy the upgrade dude, its SO worth it.
