    i recomend the ipod touch 2g has more battery life and you can get a untethered jailbreak on ipt 3g 8 gb you get less batt life and tethered jailbreak or get a 32/64 3g good luck hope that i helped a lil bit =P

    well, from what i picked up by reading what everyone on this forum says was that:

    -they managed to reduce the battery life by 6 hours? (36 hours music playback to 30 hours?) however, that may be because of firmware 3.1 (i used question marks because im not 100% sure)

    -they made it a bit more secure so that way an untethered jailbreak is not possible at the moment, but a tethered jailbreak is possible

    -processor speed remains the same

    -serial number changed from starting with MB (2g) to MC (3g)

    -price is lower, so thats a plus (but i believe if u find an old 2g, it will be the new low price as well)



    PS: glad to finally sign up on the forum, i always have stuff to say, but i never bothered signing up, until now

    The internal components of the new 8GB are the exact same as the old 8GB, confirmed in a strip down. What happened to that battery life is a mystery...

    All iDevices have lower battery life due to 3.x.x firmware.

    OT the iPod touch 3G has LED backlighting. I put an iPod touch 2G and an iPod touch 3G (both 8GB) side by side and the iPod touch 3G was brighter.
