    as far as i can ascertain:
    faster processor, everything is supposed to happen 50% quicker
    lower prices
    and there doesn't seem to be a 16GB

    I'd like to see some real time experiences for those going from the 2g to the 3g Apple iPod Touch. Not sure I want to upgrade my 2g iPod Touch 32gb (Model No: A1288) to the 3g (MC008LL/A) just yet. I paid almost $400 for a it just under a year ago. Maybe I'll jump in next year at the 4g update.

    One thing that could make me consider is if the new 3g iPod Touch doesn't cause problems when used with the Toyota/Lexus Navigation system. I use an SL2Vi from Vais Technology in my 2008 IS 350 for iPod usage and it lets me watch videos off the navi screen too. But the videos sometimes go into black and white which seems to be due to the nature of the second-generation iPod Touch.

    my 3G arrived earlier. it also has voice control (provided you use the provided earphones with mic - presumably other headphones with a mic would work as well)

    The 3G 8GB is IDENTICAL to the 2G 8GB. They dropped the price to $199 and it now comes with the OS 3.1.

    The 3G 32GB and 64GB have new hardware that is faster and also come with earbuds that include a mic and remote control on the cord.

    Hope that helps.

    I was expecting to be wowed by a 3rd generation iPod Touch. Just like the Second Generation wowed me with a speaker, volume control, hidden blue tooth and new shape. These were a 1G to 2G jump.

    Faster processor and increased capacity are standard, expected, par for the course, the natural order of things, obvious, no brainers. What was the wow factor this time? What was the funky new shape? What was the speaker? What was the extra buttons?

    Face it - no thought went into the ipod touch.
