    hi people
    i'm very new to ipod, i got a touch the other day which was 8gb, but 3g-i have just a few q's

    i've been reading several things on here, but just to confirm, is the ipod touch 8gb 3g the same as the 2g?? is there any difference at all?

    also, it came with 3.1 firmware-therefore i cannot downgrade it?


    thankyou

    ?

    I believe it's the same but people who have it say they cannot downgrade even if it's 2G.It doesn't have voice control and faster processors as the 32 and 64GB but they all cant downgrade even though the 8GB is still 2G.I'm confused as well.That's why I want the 16GB model, I dont have an iPod Touch.

    the ipod touch 8gb is exactly the same. the 32 and 64 have (duh) bigger capacities, a faster processor, more ram, and voice control. and the thing about downgrading, are you talking about to jailbreak?

    Yes, the current model 8GB is the exact same thing as the 8GB 2nd Generation.

    Therefore, it's considered an updated model.

    That's because of the OS actually... I just realized that now, 3.1 gives you a shorter battery life, and therefore they have it at 30 hours, rather than 36. So it is the same exact model, just different base OS and therefore different battery time.
