    I already have a 1st gen iPod Touch 8GB and was wondering if it is worth to upgrade to the 2nd gen for $199.95? Or would I be better off buying one of those new 5th gen iPod nanos? I don't want to buy the new 3rd gen iPod Touch as it is too expensive for me.

    Are you going to be playing a bunch of the apps and the other features of the iPod touch? Such as Mail, MobileSafari, etc.

    If you're going to use the iPod mostly for Music and Videos, then I would just get the nano.

    It's becoming more and more worth it. More and more updates are becoming 2G exclusive. I would get as much as you could for your 1G, and put that money towards a new 2G. They are much cheaper now!

    3rd gen ipod touches are not worth it.

    however, 2nd gen ipod touches ARE worth it. 100 percent!

    get a 2G! you will not regret it!

    How is the 3G not worth it? The speed isn't worth it? The size increase isn't worth it? What about it is not worth buying? Just because it doesn't have a camera doesn't mean it's not worth buying.

    2g has everything. Voice memos if you get a mic, bluetooth, sleeker design. Sell your 1g for somewhere around 75 dollars, at most.

    get the 3G, the speed DEFINATELY makes a difference

    after I got the 3GS, I kept my 3G and iPod 1G (yes I have 3 "i"s now... lol) I can't ever go back to the old ARM6 processors and the 128MB RAM
