    2nd gen it imo is better but you cannot jailbreak it yet so if you want to jailbreak then get the first gen 8 gig or if not 16gb second gen

    1st generation. You can Jailbreak it and it's much cheaper.

    This.

    I've been debating this the past few days, and I finally realized that I was going to be passing up all the things I bought my 1G for in the first place to get the latest thing.

    I have the chance to upgrade to a 2G 16GB, and I'm passing to keep my 1G. It may not be as fast as the 2G, but it does everything I want it to.

    2nd Gen, with the mic in capabilities it is very good to do VOIP calls with friends

    . The 2nd gen also feels snappier as well.

    I'd go with the 2G.

    It has speakers, Line-In (without buying special equipment/microphones), and is faster.

    Eventually there will be a jailbreak.
    The question really isn't if you want to jailbreak or not, it is how patient you are for a jailbreak

    second gen for sure... it is the most recent and will be better supported by apple...a bit faster (nothing big) but it is compatible with mics.
