iPod Touch 3rd Gen
-seems like just a processor and graphic upgrade.
-and voice control, but no mic (must buy separately
-no camera
-8GB $199; 32GB $299; 64GB $399

iPod nano
-camera
-fm tuner
-mic and speaker
-battery: 24 hour playback for audio, 5 hours for video
-8GB $149; 16GB $179

iTunes 9

iPhone OS 3.1

Kind of lackluster IMO. The new nano is cool, but other than that, no exciting news really.

Apple don't want the touch competing that closely with their beloved iPhone.

I was wondering the same thing, all of the rumors were saying that the ipod touch would get the camera.. (well I guess thats why its called rumors) :lol:

but IMO the underlying reason for the price drop was to underhand the new upcoming music player from microsoft...

the you-know-what :whistle:

It was the music event. Strictly music related. They'll probably show the Tablet next or the following around summer time...

quick question though, so they release OS 3.1.1 for ipod touch and iPhone today..

a friend of mine bought his ipod touch a week ago and the ipod still had 2.1.1 OS running in it.

can he just go to apple and show him he just bought the ipod recently and have them update it for free? or does he have to buy the $4.95 update?

Thinking about returning my nano that I bought a few weeks back. I do have 90 days to do it, might take advantage of that.

If I remember right, anything like over 100 or something is always free... If you buy accessories and stuff, I think you have to pay.

With Target, yeah. I asked them what the return policy is, they told me; if you bring it with all the original material and the receipt, you can get your full money back. Schweeet!

Where did your friend buy his ipod from? 3.0 should be standard on all ipod touches for months now (although I may be mistaken).
