    Just wondering if the new model touch is exactly the same hardware-wise? I'm about to go buy one but my local store only has the older model and doesn't expect the new version for a week or so.

    With the upgrade cost it works out to the same price so I was wondering if the software was the only difference?

    Cheers,

    I believe he is talking about what Software Version. If you buy the new 1.1.3 iPod Touches, they will be equipped with 5 iPhone Apps, if you purchased an iPod Touch before January 14 2008, you have to pay $20 for the 5 apps. You get a free update. The update only gives you a crappy iPhone dock.

    There have been at least 2 models of the touch released (probably more), but they're essentially the same hardware wise. The "new" iPod is just a software update. Some tweaks to the OS and the option to buy some new programs.
