The iPod touch 3G was released on people who were sure there was a camera. I was one of them. So, when Steve Jobs showed the 3rd generation without a camera, many were mad (or furious, depending on who you are). Now, the fact that the iPod Nano gets the camera (and FM radio) only made this worse. However, the iPod touch 3G is still an upgrade (though perhaps not as visibly as the 2nd generation was). I have just bought my iPod touch 3G from a local Best Buy, and I am impressed with it. The lack of a camera isn't a big deal to me, particularly if the camera was going to be the one on the iPod Nano. I would rather carry my Nikon D40 around (and get better images, to boot!) than the camera of the iPod Nano be included. This isn't a conclusion that I made in one day though. I was very disappointed, as was (and is, I assume) everyone else. But, its these things that made me realize that this iPod touch 3G is still the best device currently on the market (the Zune HD just got a golden chance, though). Chance of FM radio being added (perhaps in the 4.0 software update, but for a fee, of course) The speed. It really is noticeable, and I can't imagine going back to my 1G iPod touch, or my brothers 2G. It really is a big deal. 32GB. Coming from someone who bought an 8GB iPod touch 1G when the 32GB was 500$, its a nice deal. Possibility of Wireless-N being added. Thats a bonus (though one I won't be using at present). This thing is getting negative press, but I love it, and honestly, I'd say carrying a camera around JUST for better quality images is probably a smart thing in the long run. I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking to upgrade. But I'm not too happy about the lack of a BUILT IN Mic, which would be useful for a LOT of people.
