    I was browsing Apple's website and noticed that they list the nanos as 1,2,3,4,5 gens. They also do that to the Touch's but the only have a 1st and 2nd gen. No 3rd or current gen. So they still consider the 2nd gen new.

    You are correct, it's not. But we've established this in several other threads already. According to Apple this is the "Late 2009" iPod touch.

    With all of those threads of this kind, I have to say,...

    I'm still hoping for a iPod Touch with a camera! :D

    When they list product compatibility they mean if the form factor changed. For nanos, every generation saw a new form factor. 2nd and 3rd gen nanos were dramatically different. For iPod touches, the first gen was different than the current and 2nd gen ones, the curved back. The 3rd gen iPod touch still shares the same form factor as the 2nd gen.

    So are you saying, the iPhone, because it still carries the same form factor, is still first generation but maybe they just had spelling errors calling them second and third generation? :p

    Dude, identical form factor doesnt equal to a "stuck" generation. :apple:

    Umm. At least cite something that supports your argument.

    1st gen iPhone = metal backing
    2nd gen iPhone = iPhone 3G (3G for the network capability, NOT as in 3rd gen) and has a plastic back and a different form factor
    3rd gen(more maybe a kinda 2nd gen) = 3GS, which has the oleophobic coating on the screen, which some could call a different form factor. However, it could also just be called a product refresh, as the form factor is the same as the 3G.

    So cite something relevant at least.

    Watch the keynote, peeps. If it's called 3rd Gen, there's no point in crying that it isn't. Seems like the same people who are still holding their breath for a camera. :p

    It should be called 2.5g/3g. :) Under the hood, the 32/64gb has a brand new ARM processor, new co-graphics processor, and more system memory. I call that a new generation (either a half or whole increment on the title).
