    So I thought I'd come and find out a little about it.

    While I was here I thought I'd just say hello

    Its pretty much just a thin iPhone sans 3G, bluetooth, GPS and a microphone.

    It's got more power than the iPhone, though, for applications and such.

    Thanks for the replies - in what way does it have more power? And what are the differences between the First and second gen?

    Hi!
    The second gen has better battery life, faster processor( games go smoother, web pages load faster) second gen has a speaker and external volume controls

    The first generation iPod Touch is a waste of time and money, especially compared to what you can get nowdays. A 2G iPod Touch is a pretty safe bet, although I guess you could hold out and see if a 3G iPod Touch is bought out this year.

    The new iPod touch has the speakers, and that's one of the main differences.

    But if she is okay with that, honestly, just get the original iPod touch.

    You're going to save so much money just because it's "old".

    hey! welcome!
    get the 2g! it is brilliant! it being faster than the 1g makes a big difference!! and the 1g does not look nearly as good as the 2g imo.
    oh and be sure to get a case! lol the back scratches like crazy!
