    Hey everyone, I have an Ipod touch 1G and love it.

    The only feature of the 2G I really want is audio line in. Would it be worth it to sell the 1 G and buy a 2G for line it? I would use it almost exclusively for skype via Fring- can anyone comment on how well this works?

    What do ya, think, worth it? Id have to get 16GB.

    In the iPhone update 2.2 which comes out on friday. iPod Touch 2G will have the ability to support Line-in audio.
    So yes it's worth the change from 1G to 2G

    Oh heck yeah.

    I went to the downtown University bookstore here after school, and tried a 2G in-hand. Compared it with my friend's 1G, and the 2G is way slimmer, feels lighter, and way faster.

    Wait, you didn't answer his question. You just repeated what he said about how the iPod touch 2G has line-in audio and that was your reason why he should get it.

    Anyways,

    , if you're going to use it quite often for Skype/Fring, then it's definitely a good purchase. You can sell your 1st-gen to off set the cost as well.

    Personally I'm very excited about my 2g (arriving on Saturday!!) specifically because of the Skype via Fring thing.

    If I was you and I had a 1G then I'd sell it to get a 2G so I could stick it to the phone companies just on principle.

    It's going to be awesome when I move back up to Canada for school, because the town I'm living in is practically one big hotspot so with my Touch+skype I won't have to bend over and take it from phone companies anymore.

    Sell your 1g on eBay, you may be surprised at how much it goes for.

    If you jailbreak, no. At least not yet.

    If you stick with normal firmware, do it, and do it now.
