OMG. The new iPod touch (2nd gen) is soooooo much better. I used to have the origional ( unfortunately it was stolen) so I just bought the new one. And I'm extremely happy with it. It feels much thinner, and the curved back makes it feel better in your hand than the straight backed first gen, and the external speaker is really a great feature, and very useful. I've already used it so often to show a video off of YouTube to a bunch of friends, where headphones would have required me to show the video a couple of times just to let everyone see. And I really do notice the longer battery life... It goes on a couple hours longer than the last one. There's really no bad points to this new gen iPod touch, just all the new improvements. All this plus the lower price, there's no doubt in my mind that the second generation iPod touch is better than the first generation.hello people out there,
so which do you think is better? the 1st generation ipod touch or the 2nd generation?
That's true. I keep holding off on the touch since last yearthen, it will be next year around September. if you need one now, buy it. you don't have to wait for better upgrade because technology, electronics are always upgraded from time to time. there is no perfect time if you want more improvement.
I bought 1g(16gb), for 2 reasons. One it was 20 bucks cheaper and they (smalldog) didn't have the 2g in stock. After reading and rereading this forum, I brought it back the same day and upgraded to a 2g. I mean 20 bucks difference for something new why not go for the newer model.
I can say the speakers is not that good, I doubt I'll use the nike (whatever it's called), I wear NB. The volume control is handy, though.
So from a newbie, I'll say go for the 2G.
