    Just updated to OS 3.0 spending $10.57. Not so excited about it. The bluetooth only pick up stereo headphones, no other services provided. No voicecontrol, No compass...

    If you jailbrake your itouch 2.2.1, maybe you could save this $10. Or maybe go to get a iphone 3Gs.

    Bluetooth support has only ever been advertised as headphones with a2dp support, nothing else, no files no microphones nothing, so if you were expecting something else you didn't read official announcements.

    Voice control requires a microphone (not a bluetooth one or a bluetooth headset).

    Compass requires GPS hardware not in the touch or touch 2g so never going to work,.

    For voice control, I plug the microphone in and doesn't work. Voice memo works well.

    I believe there is not 100 new features of OS 3.0 for ipod touch. If Apple could clear that which features are iphone only, people would appreciate.

    I have not installed 3.0 on hardware yet, but if it's not working for the touch that is a pisser in a serious way! It will mean I wont be buying a mic which I was going to do.

    Once I find full time employment I will probably pick up a 32G 3Gs and use my touch strictly for development.

    Right! Pitty can't ask my ipod" what's the song playing?" or " play more songs like this".
