    I'm not saying is it differnt essentially than 2 g but does it have the different processor and possible ability for fm radio.

    No one has opened the updated 8G, so who knows about FM being inside of it somewhere.

    But as far as it is concerned right now, the 3G 8 GB is the same as the 2G 8 GB except for the fact that it cannot be downgraded.

    And officially there really is not such thing as a 3rd Gen 8 GB one.

    I would consider it a 3g just cause it's the released with the actual 3g. It's not physically different but I would.

    It wasn't released with the 3G's tho, it was updated along side the 32 and 64 3rd Gens getting released so that new users would be able to afford an iPod Touch.

    I am unsure how apple classifies the new 8 GB model, so it may be considered a third gen because of the "update" but I really do not know.

    I just called apple and asked what gen my iPod is as if I didn't know there were different gens. I did not say it was new or just bought I just gave the serial and he said it is a 3 gen 8 gig. I asked what's the difference he said it has a newer processor and it has a new OS

    How do you know though. The guy above said nobody has opened the 3g 8 gigs. I do think my iPod runs slightly faster than my friends 2g. Maybe cause it's newer but I have more apps and songs then him like slot more

    When I said no one had been in side, that was about the FM receiver, apple could have put something in there to do with that. Since apple has not commented on the FM features of the 32 and 64 GB, there is a VERY small chance that Apple put that goody in the 8 GB

    The processor however, apple has commented on and the 8 GB does not include it.
