The ipod touch 2g wont get all the new features ? Wtf not fair
True, because it only has 128MB of ram where the 3rd gen (32 and 64GB only) and the 3GS both have 256MB. Which Apple feels is the minimum required to run multitasking.
I think it's plenty fair. You're still getting an OS update with tons of new features. Apple says that the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2nd gen can't handle everything (like multitasking) due to hardware limitations and that obviously has truth to it as the later iPhone/iPod Touch models have faster processors and more RAM.
Be thankful you're still getting an update for 2 year old mobile hardware in today's ever-accelerating technological world.
I wish there was a more broken down list of what exactly will and will not work on the 2G. Okay, no multitasking, and...?
This is exactly what I'm waiting for.
Ooops wrong thread.....
i think they'll do away with 2g when they launch the 4.0 in fall...so it should not be a much of a problem.
and everything but iAds
Will still be charged full price for it though won't we!
Welcome to the world of technology
The iPod Touch 1G won't get ANY of the new features. How does that add up on your fairness meter?
Last year before Christmas I sold my second gen touch and got a third gen 32 gig. This will be a great update!
woohoo 2g is gonna get iAds!!!
you can jailbreak it so who cares. 3g cant jailbreak and so this is necessary.
I don't know if you were here when Snow Leopard was coming. How many people _demanded_ from Apple to drop support for PowerPC. How many people _demand_ from Apple that the next release of MacOS X should drop support for 32 bit Macs. How refreshing that iPhone/iPod users don't like if older models are not fully supported.
It may be that multitasking as implemented in the iPhone OS needs some hardware feature that isn't present on the older models. At least that is what Apple says.
When the iPhone 3GS came out I was casually thinking about getting a touch. The masses were saying "it's a minor upgrade" even though it was about twice as powerful. I decided to wait a few months until the changes were adopted in the touch, knowing it would greatly increase longevity and support for the device. Ever since, I've been glad I have the more responsive device and now I'm triply happy about waiting.
That being said I'm guessing there's going to be huge hardware development in the next set of releases. I'll be perfectly happy if I can run everything for a couple of years before upgrading again in Sept next year. These things aren't all that expensive to begin with and they fetch a decent price on the used market.
