    I want to sell my iPod Touch second generation to get the iPod Touch 3g when it comes out. I know it's risk since there's a possibility that the 3rd generation touch won't even come out. I'm willing to take that risk though lol. So when should I think about selling my iPod Touch 2g (16gb)?

    Like Now before the 3G comes because once a new product comes out the old one's price drops a lot!

    I would do it the Monday before the keynote. That way, you will still have your 2G iPod Touch until the last minute while still receiving the best price for it. That's what I plan to do.

    It's not worth it to sell. You'll take a big hit on the value. I'd suggest just keeping the 2G as a back up.

    sell it either now or wait till the holidays. you'll have an easy time selling it then..and some people really could care less about which generation it is.

    Good point there, -Xi-...

    But dagr8est, if you need the funds to purchase the 3G, I suggest you sell it off now as the price of the old models will fall A LOT once the new one has been released... Ebay or Craigslist are good places to source for buyers...

    if you're gonna sell it now, wouldnt sell it the day before the announcement of a new one. your buyer probably wont know that theres a new one coming out anyway, but theres little chance that you'll sell it close to your asking price in a day. maybe start the weekend before the announcement (like the 29th and not the 5th) and you might sell it by like wednesday or thursday for a good price. you'll have to live without an ipod for a weekend..oh no. is it worth the 50+ bucks you'd lose by waiting till the last minute?
