    Hello.

    Right now, I can go right down to a store and buy an iPod touch 2G.
    But why should I do that, if the iPod touch 3G is coming out in September?
    Or is it? I actually don't have a clue..

    So here's my question:

    Is it sure that the 3rd generation, is coming out?
    I've seen in some thread, that some guy found the BlueTool script, and it's called something with 'iPod3,1' wich means it's for the 3rd generation, right?

    Also, we haven't heard anything from Apple about the 3rd generation iPod touch, wich actually freaks me out..
    Or is it what Apple do? Just announce the device, just before it's release?
    And when did they announce the 2nd generation iPod touch? And have anybody heard about it, before they announced it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok, first, iPods are always updated in September/ October for the holiday season. The last 2 years have been in September. Now, 3.1 does make it the third generation. Apple NEVER speaks of their products before they are officially released. In September, they have a big event, and they launch them to a lot of fanfare, and everyone gets warm and cozy inside. In August, you will start seeing a lot of rumors. Now, last year, the rumors were right. Every year it just depends if the rumor-mill gets lucky.

    OR even why pay the $10 to upgrade to the 3.0 OS?

    I'm pretty sure there will be a 3G. Just wait and see.

    Well, IMO, the 3.0 firmware update is already a sign of things to come... If a new iPod touch really is released in September, it will certainly come with the new OS as well as other features that will make it more superior than it's older 2G sibling...

    Then again, if you cannot wait for too long (2+ months, to be exact), just get the touch 2G and sell it off when the new model comes out!

    I'm in the same position as the poster, I've never bought an apple product in my life but now i need a portable little device to take to university everyday instead of my 8 lb laptop. I almost spent 300 on the 2nd gen but pulled back when i figured out they will probably release a new one in Sept

    I'm just praying it won't be any later and it will have features that catch up to iphone 3gs

    Only features I could see them adding is maybe make the speaker a little louder, make it faster and maybe a microphone but that's doubtful since the new headphones have those

    Well, I'm pretty sceptical about the inclusion of a built-in camera to the new iPod touch... However, I hope that Apple will improve the speakers as the ones in the current 2G are just so-so (sounds like some 80s radio!

    It's called os 3.0 because there will be an IPT 3G, if not then name the firmware, 2.3 or something like that then. Thats what I think.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, thanks.
