    OK I recently sold my older model ipod touch and I wanna know:

    Should I wait for 4g or go ahead and buy 3g?

    Another thing is that I heard some people saying that 3g battery life drops when playing apps, is that true?

    One last thing: Will the 4g ipod touch have wireless sync?:apple:

    Anything will drop in battery life when playing games.

    And the wireless sync thing - there's a Cydia app for that, and no one knows if Apple will let us do that without a jailbreak.

    I don't know if it helps, but I'm in the same boat. If you have no other mp3 player and it's driving you crazy, I'd say go for it. The new ones tend to come out in September, so if you can survive through the summer, wait it out. It'll be worth waiting for because even if you don't like the 4th gen (but please, we're all going to be drooling) you can buy the 3rd gen for much less.

    It depends. Are you willing to wait ~4 months?

    And no it probably will not have wireless sync. If it did, it would likely be in OS 4.

    I'm in the same boat. I really want one today but my six year old ipod with black and white screen still plays the music just as well as it ever did so I'm waiting for new generation and new OS.

    1g outlasts 3g

    No because people say it drops ALOT because my sister has one and I have a 1g and my battery life outlasts hers!

    If you can tell me the specifications of the 4G model I can tell you whether you should wait.

    Well no one knows the real specifications of the 4g but it will probably have a better speaker better battery life and some other stuff.

    I'm waiting for the 4th gen. My current main iPod is a 5.5G 80gb, so hopefully the next iPod will double its current capacity (as it does every refresh). But if you really need one then get one. The current iPod touch is great but the next one will be better. By how much we don't know!

    Now stop leaving around prototype iPhones and leave a 4G iPod touch plox. :D
