    I used to own a 2nd Gen touch. I ebayed it a couple months ago. Now I just got the 3rd Gen. Is it just me, or does the speaker sound much better on the 3rd Gen? The 2nd Gen seemed tinny and whimpy, this one is still tinny, but can get louder.

    Maybe it's my imagination. Anyone have both devices side by side and can comment?

    I think you are right, my 3rd is louder and of a better quality than the one on my 2nd gen.:D

    Never thought about it, but I think you're right. I set up the Touch 2G that my sister got in the Back to School promotion and watched a video using the speaker as the audio output. The same video on my new Touch 3G is louder than I remember hers being. Good deal!

    Yeah! you guys are all right. The speaker on the 3RD Gen is louder & a bit more clearer. I could tell from the very beginning something different about the sound. Using my second Gen & my sisters 3rd gen we were able to come to conclusion that some sort of an upgrade was done in the sound dept.

    However, that still isn't enough for me to go out and get a new one. I'm in for the long haul. I'd like a camera in mines as well. :D

    Interesting. I wonder why Apple didn't say anything about it.

    Where the fresh snow don't go.
    Probably didn't want to mention anything until they release an Ipod Touch w/ a camera...then they can say "Upgraded Speakers and NOW with a Camera!" :D

    This is interesting...perhaps someone could post a video on youtube comparing the two. ?
