    Should I keep my Second Gen iPod touch (jailbroken) or get the Third Gen iPod touch, which may not even get a jailbreak.

    Discuss.

    It all depends on how important being jailbroken is, if you want a faster/ newer ipod (or are satisfied with what you have), if a camera is important to you (if the rumors are true), if a built in mic is important (if rumors are true), and if an oleophobic (probably will be since the 3gs has this) screen is important to you. I read a forum the other day saying that the dev team has some other holes in the ipod touch they could use that no one else knows about, hopefully these will still be in the third gen and a jailbreak will be out somewhat quickly (most likely tethered at first). Also it depends on the extra money it may cost (not compared to the current new price of a 2g, but of what u get for it used compared to the price of a new 3g). It would definitely be best to sell the 2g before the 3g comes out if you are definitely going to get the 3g.

    Wait until it is announced and displayed on tuesday, then decide.
    You could sell it now.
    Then either buy a 3g
    or buy another 2g. The 2g will be cheaper after the 3g is announced, probably saving you some cash

    Chronic Dev hinted of a tethered Jailbreak and the 3rd gens will be the same price as the 2nd gens are now so you should get a 3rd gen.

    What would you do with your 2g either way? Sell it?
    You could use your 2g as a jailbroken device; and then buy the 3rd and wait for a jailbreak.
    But I wouldn't think about getting a new iTouch untill its displayed.
