Yes. It is normal. Almost everyone complains about the battery life.

battery life

Yes,It's true battery life is short I'm using now 2ndgen iPod touch which gave as a Christmas present to my daugther , we owned also 1stgen iPod touch and we recognize the difference of the battery life I hope apple will take this problem but , it's a good good device no debate on it that's why we bought again for a another one ... Thanks to Steve Jobs for creating this gadget more power to apple company!!!

3 hours is also about what I get on my IPT 2G. Not great, but guess if I am going to be online for more than that, I'd use my desktop. If i'm just using it for music, podcasts then no complaints on battery life, 25-30 hours.

What the 2g has that the 1g doesn't

Faster processor speed
Volume buttons
External speakers
Nike+
Different curved back
Comes with 2.2

The only downside to the 2g is there is no jailbreak for it yet.
