    32gb and 64 don't have a built in mic. The headphones come with a mic.

    Go into settings>general>about>model if its MC you have a 3gen. If it's a MB is a 2gen.

    Dont get to exited, 3rd gen 8gb ipod touches have the EXACT SAME HARDWARE as the 2nd gen

    the only difference is that the 8gb 3rd gen has patched boot room which mean you have to deal with a tethered jailbreak wich sucks for you

    also the 3rd gen 8gb ipod touch has less battery live than the 2nd gen one

    in other words 2nd gen ipod tocuh its BETTER than 3rd gen 8gb ipod touch




    Now the 32gb and 64gb 3rd gen ipod touches, that where all the fun is at

    the 32gb and 64 gb models have more ram 256mb, faster processors 600mhz, and much better graphic chip which has support for open gl 2.0 and it is said to outperform psp graphics

    The 8gb has the hidden FM chip like the 32 and 64. That's pretty much the whole update for the 8gb.

    are you sure? do you have a source?

    but still a hidden non functional fm radio chip doesnt make it any better than a 2nd gen 8gb ipod touch, it evens the situation at most

    my rationale the 3rd gen 8g ipod touch has less battery life than the 2nd gen to and a patched boot room. and a hidden fm chip (that may not even be there)that's not functional at the moment and it will take fw 4.0 to make it functional which will not be out till the summer of june

    edit
    as i though, i did a goolgle search about this hidden fm chip on the 3rd gen ipod touches

    and all i found was disassembles of the 32/64 gb models which have this hidden chip present, and no site mentioned that the 8gb model had this hidden fm chip

    i may be wrong, but it looks like the 8gb model has the SAME hardware as the 2nd gen apart from those differences i mentioned before
