Does anyone know how to make sure a iPod Touch is 3rd Gen.

    Hello Guys,

    Just bought a iPod Touch 8gb 3rd Gen for £110 shipped from ebay - brand new.

    When it does arrive I want to make sure it is 3rd Gen - so do anyone know how to check if the iPod Touch is 3rd Gen for sure?

    Because at the price I got this touch it seems to me its a bargin. But I don't want it in the end to be 2nd Gen.

    Cheers guys.


    "The iPod touch (3rd generation) 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."

    Check the headphones (if it comes with the originals) as they will have volume controls on them, whereas the 2nd gen does not.
