    I was talking about the Specs...
    Anyways let me get to my point.
    There isn't any difference!
    So what does it matter if they made a mistake..
    I don't even think they made a 3G 8GB iPod touch...

    the only difference is the "new" ones ship with the in-line mic headsets.

    yeah but only the 8GB ones. The 32 and 64 come with the iPhone headsets. Also the processors run at 600MHz instead of 533MHz

    still, they upgraded the processor. that is literally all that puts it in the 3G category.
