I was intending to buy a iPod Touch 2G 16gb until today, after I found a very cheap source of new original iPod Touch 1G 8gb(approx. US$160 only, which is almost half of $299). Am just looking for opinions from everyone who has experience with both generations of iPod Touch. I am aware of the improvements as on the paper, but I guess prolonged experience with both models provides the best guide. Storage capacity & external speaker aside, are there other improvements whch you think justify the extra $140? e.g. battery life (this is one thing I'm very unsure about, 'cause I've read aplenty of complaints regarding 2G's battery life)... Thank you. Your opinions are much appreciated.
