Was looking to get this the other day. Was close to ordering at a higher price of £141.00

By chance - there was a new listing for a 2nd Gen iPod Touch 8gb. Brand New and boxed. So got that instead at £95 quid.

Good price. Head Added.

The 8gb 3rd gen touch is identical to the 8gb 2nd gen. It's only the higher capacity 3rd gen models that have the faster cpu/gpu.
#3
Same price it has always been

Strange, as it's £152 on Apple's own website.

Cold from me. Normal price.

Although £2 cheaper than of later, it's not exactly a hot deal. That said, it's probably the best price at the moment (you can pay more but get a free speaker thrown in at Currys etc.).

It not 3rd Generation! Look on the apple website! It's only the 32gb and 64gb models that are 3rd Gen!!!

I'll check it out

No your wrong, everyone says that 3rd Gen 8GB doesn't exist. But it does and thats its, the 2nd gen has firmwire 2.1? and 3rd gen has firmwire 3.0 - So there is a difference difference. And the 3rd gens has the same processor speed but its different because when you jailbreak 2nd gen its fully jailbroken, while when you jail break 3rd gen its tethered jailbreak.

Quote from PC Advisor Magazine:

"The £149 8GB iPod touch 3rd gen model, on the other hand, is just the equivalent of the iPhone 3G-a collection of year-old technology that's been kept around to be sold at a bargain price."

I think the point being made above though is that if you take an 8gb 2nd gen and upgrade the firmware to 3.0 then that is exactly the same as the one being sold as 3rd gen.

The 3rd gen relates to the processor speed, not just the firmware version.

I've never understood the obsession with iPod Touchs. If you're wanting to play music/videos, simply get an iPod Video which are generally half the price with triple the capacity. The only real thing seemingly going for the Touch is that it looks "cooler", includes other features like weather/calendars etc. Personally I'd prefer a lot more capacity for what I essentially use it for - music and videos.

You're underestimating what the iPod touch does. It is pretty much a pocket computer, that can do everything from surfing the web (astonishingly well for such a small screen) to playing near-PSP-quality games. If you don't need any of this capability, then you do indeed get more capacity for the same price with a traditional iPod, but the iPod touch is designed to do far more.

well let me tell you my story ,i got an iphone loved it but battery sux ,the apps are great ,anyway i sold my iphone and got a nokia 5800 altho a good phone it didnt have the apps so im stuck what to get iphone with crappy battery and crappy camera and other normal good phone features missing or cut down . so here is what i do i sell the nokia and my ndsi ,which i didnt use and get a samsung i8910 hd phone with hd recording great mp3 great battery life up to 3 times the iphone and with the money from the ndsi i get my self a 16gb ipod touch ,problem solved best of both worlds i got great phone and ipod with apps and also when using the apps my phone dont get its battery drained .



so point to my story is the ipod touch is worth every penny i paid for it and this is a bargain these prices i remember last year the 8gb 2nd gen was about £160 ish even at that price its worth it ,i use mine every day if i cant get on pc or dont want to turn it on i can get my emails in a sec if i want to play facebook poker while in bed i can its a great bit of kit check out the new type of oblivion game called ravensword its awsome .


and you are correct the 3rd gen has faster cpu/gpu for new types of apps and games coming this year
