    I'm posting this also in the 4.0 forum. If it's against the rules I'm sorry I just want to get a good discussion going.

    So apparently ipod touch 2nd gen will have limited features in 4.0. How limited? Will it be worth upgrading to a 3rd gen? It looks like jailbreaking will be kind of pointless with 4.0

    Wait till full details come out on the limited features, and then ask yourself if you wanna upgrade, that simple. At this point, only the good folks at Apple know the features that are coming with each device.


    Edit:
    I for one, will be upgrading my 3G to a used 3GS since it'll be cheaper then buying the 4th gen iPhone (Contract expires in october 11'). But then again, only mod i've done to my 3G since jailbreaking is custom sms tones and SBSettings, so i don't really care for many of the new features.

    I'd wait until fall. Get 4.0 for your Touch and see what the 4th gen is like, then either get that or maybe get a 3rd gen cheaper.

    I have a first gen, so since we don't get 4.0, will get a 4th gen. At least they finally didn't say there would be a fee.

    Not yet, because its the not the official firmware, wait till actual release and there will be. Apple needs a way to get some more money out of the iPod Touch, and i really doubt they're gonna give such a big update for free.

    Then again, you can choose to pay for it, or just stay on an old firmware and get all the features (not Apple branded) for free on Cydia.

    The 3rd gen ipod touch is far better, you should get it if you plan on buying a new device

    It has more powerful hardware, and better graphics, we just need devs to take more advantage of it

    Don't get a 3rd gen. Wait for 4th gen. Few more months. (About 4)
