If these are the latest version iPods (3rd gen) = this is a hot deal.

16GB for £149 is a great deal in particular IMO.

Well spotted OP.

i think these are 2nd gen ones as the 16gb is not one of the new 3rd gen options

Please can anyone give me some advice. My 15 yr old son has asked for an ipod with a screen. He's not that into music but likes downloading videos and tv from the net. I had bought a creative zen 8gb but having read some of the latest deals realised that I know nothing about them and should return it and buy something better for the money .
Because of the likelihood of it being stolen at school, I'm not sure about buying the ipod touch but will anything else be as good?
Grateful for all advice, from a mum feeling her age, as technology races past her...

I would try, if possible, to get one with at least 16gb if he likes TV programmes and the like, 8gb would get full in no time.

There was a deal on here for a 16gb Zen this week, see if you can get one of those.

Here are some images of the one I boughthttp://i939.photobucket.com/albums/ad235/blacklodge_bucket/IMG_0142.jpghttp://i939.photobucket.com/albums/ad235/blacklodge_bucket/IMG_0143.jpg

These are great prices then as online they are £164.99, £209.99, & £279.99 for the v3 touch.

op, are these 3g or 2G?

voted hot

Original Poster

The Gen 3 is only available in 8GB, 32GB and 64GB
16GB is Gen 2.

Gen 3 has a faster processor and stereo bluetooth, and comes with latest version of firmware installed. This costs $4.95 if you want to buy it.

apple.com/ca/…tml


Does this make it any less of a deal?
I don't see the big issue unless you want it primarily to play head to head games via bluetooth.

Original Poster

I am afraid I don't know. I don't work there and I am not a tech support for apple.
I bought it as a present, so will not be opening it, and just wanted to share the deal with the community.

If anyone else wants to go and find out more, please call a store.
thanks

Again - I am afraid I cannot confirm 3g or 2g on the others.

16GB is 2g only as far as I am aware. As such the web site appears innacurate in stating 16gb v3

Yes 3rd Generation, he said its a sale price and may not still be on tomorrow.

Annoys me to death when someone takes the time to post and save us a few quid and some bright spark votes it cold, simply because they dont believe the op.. :x

PS.. I really appreciate you posting OP. I have three kids to buy for and one of them has a Birthday just after New Year, so a saving of £20 or £30 on this is great, thank you!

Gamestation from what i can remember only do second generation touch - they have none of the latest generation stuff on any apple model.

Despite all that, very hot prices whether it be 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation as you can download the latest technology, apart from having a speaker or bluetooth

all 2nd gen, they were on sale to clear stock, none left in Brighton. Great price if you can find one.

These prices are clearance prices for 2nd generation stock. The 3rd generation 8GB Touch only has version 3 software, it is still the same hardware. There is no such thing as a 3rd generation 16GB touch, it was dropped from the range. Check the specific model numbers to see which generation you have bought.

And no stock in Bolton, Newport Street branch.

See ]Wkikpedia for specific models with numbers .

Word of advice, don't go buying your son an ipod if he's going to be taking it to school with him, unless you've gotten him in a private school away from all the kids from poorer families who would step on their own mother's grave for an ipod.

Otherwise, chances are he is going to end up with it being nicked, or someone's going to beat him up for it then nick it.

Don't know if this can help..

The iPod touch (Late 2009) can be distinguished from iPod touch (2nd generation) by looking at the back of the device. All iPod touch models introduced in Late 2009 have two or three lines of text below the capacity engraving. The prior iPod touch (2nd generation) had four lines of text or more.

he is right. mine got nicked and my daddy is a working class man and i go to a normal school. They beat me up and stole it. I am not allowed any electrical items now. I wish I had an older brother so he could have helped me but one day I will grow up be able to look after myself because my Daddy has put me in boxing and Ju Jitsu lessons instead of giving me toys. He said in the future I will be able to defend myself from a ever growing evil society.

The one the Op bought is 2nd Gen - on the 2nd picture they posted it shows Model number - MB531BT

So look for the same sticker on yours and if it's a different number - Google it - I don't have a list of those models but putting that one in came up with the info straight away

Does anyone know ifgamestation accept 1st gen ipod touches as trade in for one? and how much could i get for a 16gb?

Looks like somebody's not telling you the truth on the phone then as below is what people are saying about 2nd gen ? This is why i voted cold the op bought old stock not 3rd gen and never knew what one he was posting or buying in fact :thumbsup:

Can you just go and troll somewhere else please?

I never said this was 3rd gen - I placed it as a deal on IPod touch.

I did it because the community here want deals. I have no idea why some people just want everything to fail. Some people want an IPod touch - and those people can buy them from Gamestation. I really could care less if its gen2, gen 3 or anything else, its an IPod touch and at a good price.

If you aren't intrerested, please just leave this thread to those that are.

Correct me if I'm wrong but 3rd gen = camera on the back ???

I asked at my local one today:

- These prices are for the second generation
- The confusion has occurred due to how the stock displays on the system. The first gen iPod Touch apparently scanned as Touch V2, so these touch's are scanning as V3, but are in fact second generation (yes confusing!)
- This is definitely in store and nationwide, depending on stock.

Bobbytallant;7201985

No, only the new Nano's have got cameras. There was loads of talk that the new iPod Touch was going to get a camera, but apparently very late on, there were production issues so it never got a camera.

No trolling wanted to buy a ipod touch for the kids at a good price you posted a deal i voted cold you got the hump :thumbsup:

If you post a deal like this people will want to know what model it is not just any old ipod touch i know you could not careless as you said above but 99.9% will want the 3rd gen ipod touch as i do not just any old ipod touch at a good price as you do. Now if the tittle said 2nd gen ipod touch at gamestation then we would not be having this convo sorry if you don't like me asking qs about the deal :?

Or even worse, if he does not go to a private school he may use words like "gotten".
