iPod Touch 3 gen

A couple months ago i bought the touch 2g and i love it now. I'm wonderin when the touch 3g could come out and what it would do better than mine? Also could i like trade in my touch and get like discounts on a newer version?

Anyone's best guess says the new touch will be updated in September.

And there's good chances for it having 64GB, mic, camera?, faster processor, more RAM.

We really don't know yet, all we can do it guess.

It will probably be faster, have a vibration option, louder speakers, and MAYBE a camera or microphone.

All guesses, I have no idea.

As long as it is faster and has a Camera, I'll be happy.

I wonder if it'll have a faster processor than the iPhone 3GS like the 2G had a faster processor than the iPhone 3G? Or maybe the 2G Touch was just an experiment to see the effect on battery life?

It should be on par with the 3GS but lacking anything phone related, rumble would also be a nice extra for us ipod users.

I doubt I could afford to buy a 3g touch anyway :P so I thank apple for making the 2g touch slightly faster then the older iphones to help keep up.

Wi-Max chip and mike. Wi-Max chip and mike. Extremely unlikely, the chip, but I might as well dream.

yeah i want a mic, vibrate, faster processer and a camera would be awesome. But could you trade in a 2g for a 3g or at least a discount? Did a 1g owner do anything to upgrade to 2g?

I thought it might actually be cheaper, as prices for all the ipods have always been going down with each new model
