    I plan on selling my ipod touch 1st generation and getting a 2nd gen, but I'm wondering...

    Is there any chance of Apple announcing new ipod touches anytime soon? I really don't want to buy a new Ipod if they're just going to announce new ipods a month or so after.

    unlikely, there's no rumors of any new ipods being announced in January, and so at the earliest, still pretty unlikely, they would be announced in June and come out in September or so.

    Pretty much what duke said. If something new is to come out it would be announced around june and come out in september or so. Also, if they do you can have an older version. Which could be like an archive. Or you can sell yours back to the store and get the new one when it comes out. Besides, not really too much more to add besides a lock button. So yeah, don't worry about it. Plus, 2nd gens are awesome.

    You're good until at least September 2009. Unless they suddenly change their ways, September has always been Apple's "iPod month" and is the month when they release new iPods into the market. Probably because it's right before the holiday shopping season.

    For example, look at the release of other iPods:
    • 1G iPod touch: September 13th, 2007
    • 2G iPod touch: September 9th, 2008
    • 1G iPod nano: September 7th, 2005
    • 2G iPod nano: September 12th, 2006
    • 3G iPod nano: September 5th, 2007
    • 4G iPod nano: September 9th, 2008
    • 5G iPod classic: September 2007
    • 6G iPod classic: September 2008
    All the older models of the iPod classic had scattered releases but I think Apple has made it September only now.

    Well a jailbreak will be coming soon for 2nd gen (hopefully) and he might not even want to jailbreak it.
