Long time lurker 1st time poster Well I just purchased a brand new iPod Touch 32gb(2.5g) from my local Apple store in the UK. Coming from a 2nd gen iPod Touch there are no cosmetic changes whatsoever (apart from upgraded headphones). After plugging it into my laptop I had to perform a Software update from 3.1 to 3.1.1. I am now in the process of restoring it from my 2nd gen backup file. Will report any differences after. I'm hoping for a noticable speed increase and trying out the voice control. P.S. I had a couple of 2002 could not restore error codes, but have managed to solve that by re-booting my laptop and trying again!
