    Hi guys.

    I'm a little confused here, i've been an iPhone user for a long time and i'm getting an iPod touch for my girlfriend so she can use it on skype.

    Is it true that the current 8GB iPod Touch is actually the second generation model? and the 32/64gb versions are 3rd gen models?

    My reason for asking is that i'm thinking of buying her the 8GB Touch + Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to use with skype.. has anyone tried this and how was it? Does it even work?

    These are the Earbuds i'm looking to buy with the 8GB iPod Touch model... Apparently the only support the 2nd Gen Touch so if anyone can clarify whether or not the 8GB version is a 2nd Gen then i'd be psyched.

    I can answer one thing. 8GB IS 2nd Generation. 32 and 64 are the only third generations :)

    The current 8GB model does retain the 2nd gen hardware.

    Using it with a headset/mic will work for Skype and other recording.

    However, the 2G hardware doesn't support the VoiceOver (voice command) feature that the true 3G hardware does.

    Thanks, Perfect guys... i'm gonna go buy an iPod Touch today then :p

    VoiceOver isn't that important, she just need it to do long distance calling dirtcheap with skype.

    Technically the 8gb is third gen, but its just the name, other than that theres no difference.
