    Here's the environmental specs of the old 2G Touch:
    Arsenic-free glass
    Brominated flame retardant-free
    Mercury-free
    PVC-free
    Highly recyclable stainless steel enclosure

    And here's the new list for the new Touch:
    Arsenic-free display glass
    BFR-free
    Mercury-free LED-backlit display
    PVC-free
    Highly recyclable stainless steel enclosure

    Is the LED backlight new? Maybe they were using cold cathode for the older models...

    Did they replace the glass with the oleoophobic version? No mention of that either.

    You would think they would at least increase the battery life with such changes, but the battery life actually dropped in the new model.

    Apple would have said something at the event if they did or not. They wouldn't leave any new features of the new iPod Touch out. They would have mentioned it at the event or on their website if they replaced the screen.

    So, With that said... The screen is the same.
