    Apple's 1.1.3 Touch upgrade must be available. If you go to Apples site and go to the Touch Page, there is a link to upgrade you older Touch for $19.95. It then launches the iTunes store and you can proceed from there. The 1.1.3 upgrade will cost you no matter what. So, it must be available now.

    I assume the new Touchs already have it installed, therefore new upgrades for them MIGHT not cost anything. cough cough

    EDIT: Plug in your Touch and hit update. It is available now. You can back out and tell it not to bother you until you want it.

    i bet there will be a way to update to 1.1.3 and not pay for it or the 5 apps and have it jailbroken and then add whatever you want within a very short time.

    Yes. the $19.95 is what you pay for the apps. The upgrade to 1.1.3 itself is free. When you upgrade, it will ask if you want to purchase the apps.

    Purchasing the apps causes a very small file (too small to actually contain the apps themselves) to be sent to your computer.

    It appears, therefore, that the apps themselves are physically present in the free 1.1.3 firmware, but they are locked out until you purchase them through the iTunes Store.

    Installing the very small file results in a modification to the iPod Touch's internal settings, which causes the new apps to become accessible.

    So yes, in principle, if you were willing to violate the DMCA, then a hypothetical jailbreak for the free version of 1.1.3 ought to be all you'd need to be able to modify the iPod Touch's settings files yourself to unlock access to the new apps without purchasing them.
