    I have had my 1st Generation iPod Touch since the day it came out and I have never had a problem..until now. About a week ago my audio jack broke. So I went to the Apple store and they said I was not under warranty and that they dont to that kind of hardware fixes in the store. He gave me the name of a 3rd party company that do audio jack repairs (macmedics.com/tr). So I gave them a shot. Well to my dismay, they couldnt fix it. the was a problem with a chip inside and to get that repaired, it would be $189. A refurbished 1st Generation iPod Touch would cost $199 and a new 2nd Generation iPod Touch 16gb would be $299.

    Heres my question you guys. Should I:
    1. Wait until June for any news for a 3rd Generation iPod Touch
    or
    2. Buy a new one

    I would say wait until June. It's hard to go for that long without headphones, but you can always use speakers or use an older iPod (if you have one) or a cheap mp3 player from a store. But if a 3rd Generation iPod touch is released in June, the 1G is going to become almost entirely outdated as more and more apps will offer features that require bluetooth.

    Yes, the new iPhone is supposed to be coming in July, maybe they'll ANNOUNCE a new iPod touch then?

    I don't think so.

    Who cares whether or not they've done it before? They announced the iPhone well before it was released, and they announced the 3G before it was released. Perhaps they'll announce the 3rd generation iPod touch along with the next generation iPhone but they'll wait until the 3.0 firmware is ready for release. Although it is not likely, it is anybody's guess.
