    Hi all,

    I've just bought a new iPod touch 32GB from a UK Vendor.

    When I got it I typed in the Serial code in apple serial info and it said it was built in August, unsurprisingly when I switched it on it was still on iOS 4.3.5,

    I'm curious to know if any out there actually are shipping with iOS 5 at the moment (apart from the White one).

    If so is there actually any difference to them or it's just simply got iOS 5 on it and the "Home" Screen sticker has the iOS 5 icons.

    I could return it but if there is no difference in regards to performance then I'll stick with it.

    Any info appreciated.

    To date, there are no known differences between iPod touches that ship with 4.3.5 or 5.

    For the stores that have cleared its old stock of ipod touches, the ones that they would be carrying will have iOS5 pre installed.

    The "new" iPod Touch is the exact same as the one released in late 2010. The only difference is the colour on the white model. Once you update an iPod Touch 4G to iOS 5, its the exact same as the "new" ones.
