View Full Version : iPod touch Users: Will You Upgrade to 3rd Gen?

07-01-2009, 11:03 AM
I'm sure many people with Touches who don't plan on getting an iPhone soon are a bit envious of 3GS owners. I'm wondering how envious they are: Are you planning on getting the next iPod touch (Let's call it iPod touch S)?

It will most likely included the speed upgrades of the 3GS (unless Apple wants to keep fragmenting the user-base) and probably add a few more nice features. If Apple follows their usual pattern, we can expect it being announced in September, after the Back to School offer is over (Sept. 8).

The only way I will upgrade is if the new iPod Touch has better hardware (as good or better than the iPhone3G S) or if it has a camera. Other wise I'll stick with my iPod Touch 1st Gen.

I got my Ipod Touch 2G this december so I don't plan buy another one right now. I am probably gonna wait until a Ipod Touch 4G will be out :D.

I have a 2nd Gen iPod Touch, 32GB, which I primarily use as a PDA.

Since games are just a bonus for me, I don't see myself upgrading, especially since I find myself primarily playing stuff like Isotope and logic/puzzle games like Puzzle Maniak, neither of which really need the new hardware to be enjoyable... :cool:

I'll wait before I update. I have a 8GB 2nd gen iPod but need more GB's!!! So if it has a cam and some 3GS features I'm getting it.

I already have 300 aside for a nice new 16gb.

Wifi is as good as it will get (once mine works). Games there are plenty to play.

Given Apple's continual upgrade policy designed to empty pockets as frequently as they can I'll wait for a very compelling reason.

I'm going to "upgrade" from iPhone to the new iPod touch. The phone is just not worth all the trouble. I never upgraded to the 3G because my buddy had one replaced 3 times in 6 months time. He's already setup to get his second 3GS. He treats his phones better than anything. The 3G and 3GS are cheap plastic. AT&T is the worst cell company on the planet. Dropped calls. Calls that don't even come in. I can go on for ever!

Ok fanboys, start your engines!

I will be upgrading to the ipod 3G. I have a 1g 8g and in it is not enough. I'll get the 32gb. It will be nice to have a camera but I'll prefer a better speaker.
I am also excited about the accesories. For example, I'll be getting a portable projector that will go out soon. I hope there will a gps accesory and that would be more than enough for me for the moment.

Most likely I will be upgrading from a 32g 2nd Gen iPod touch to the 32g newest one. Only because I am a total gadget whore and I for some odd reason have to have the most up-to-date in terms of Hardware upgrades. Its a really shitty and costly habbit... Especially when the product is an Apple product.

yeh i'll upgrade. This morning I officially ran out of proper space on my 8GB 1g ipod. i'll upgrade because of space, maybe to 16GB or even 32 if i have the cash. i'd also love a speaker/mic for different games i have because atm i dont listen to the soundtrack/voice so i only get half of my moneys worth!
i'd also love the voice control, so handy!

I have my 1st gen iPod, with 3.0. I got it long ago when they first came out. Back then it was like "Omg you have an iPod touch!"
Now it's like "man, my iPod 1G sucks. It's too slow, has 8GB, no bluetooth, etc".

So I've decided that if I'm not getting an iPhone soon I might as well get the 3rd gen.

Yeah, definitely. I've finally used up my 8 gigs. Never thought I would, but I didn't take apps, and strangely, movies into account. Now, every time I download something, I'm told to delete something to make room. It sucks.
