What's the difference, is it the firmware or the hardware?

As far as I can see its like the difference between the Iphone 3G and Iphone 3GS, faster processor and updated firmware too. Dont get me wrong this seems a good deal but I am warey that some retailers are trying to flog "New 2009" Ipod touch stock that is correctly 2009 but 2nd Gen was out 2009 and 3rd gen only came in 23rd Sept 2009, anything before that is 2nd Gen. If you want to be safe use Amazon which is same price deal as this, no free speakers but states "3rd Gen".

Have just ordered the Amazon one, but can anybody recommend a decent speaker system please?..BOSE, Altec Lansing? Im confused which to go for at around £200.

Well I could be wrong, but I think that:
pre-September the Touch was only available as 8GB or 16GB, and
post-September the Touch was only available as 8GB (unchanged spec) or 32GB (better spec) or 64GB (better spec).
Better spec included the faster processor, OS 3.1, voice control and a headphone with microphone.

So that means that a 32GB *must* be a latest gen.

It might be worth noting that those specs being listed in the original post (if they're taken from Dixons) are for the 2G – that had 36 hours battery time for music. The 3G has less at 30 hours, I assume this is because of the demands of the faster processor.

Nope, it was:8, 16 and 32Now it's8, 32 and 64.



OK, thanks to you and MBeeching, for pointing out the error of my ways.
I had made a few notes in early September based on what I could see at the Apple Store - maybe they weren't listing the 2nd Gen 32GB, or I missed it.

There's only one speaker system worth getting for £100.

Has anyone ever heard of the Lava Mini speaker? I can't find anything online. However, it looks exactly like the XMI X Mini Speaker

Is there any way of checking from the outside of the box i.e. model number etc....

For what it is worth, the picture is clearly that of a third gen touch as the headphones are the ones with the microphone.

Am I correct to say that if the outer box states that it includes headphones with a micrphone then it is definately a third generation model?

I have a 32gb one coming tomorrow so i can post back with what i recieve, what should i be looking for as proof it is the 3rd gen apart from the microphone on the headphones?

Yes it'll be good to know...!

Ok guys I think I need your help, it came this afternoon and its a clear case with a picture of the ipod touch on the frount no picture of earphones and on the label it states model no A1318 and MC008BT/A does that mean anything to decipher whether 2nd or 3rd?

Hey guys, dixons state that "With touch 3.1 software pre installed you can start using the latest features right out of the box." i've checked wikipedia there and it says that 2nd gen models are preinstalled with 2.1.1, but the 3rd gen are preinstalled with 3.1.1.

Hope this helps

I googled the model number and the part number and its indicating that its the 3rd generation touch after all ;-)

Looks like it's expired now
