I think you're right. The 2nd Gens all had the same specs as far as I know. It was the 3rd Gens where only the 32 and 64 GB models were equipped with the better hardware. As you mention, the 3rd Gen 8 GB was essentially the same as a 2nd Gen.

Now I'm not sure. . I STILL. Think that there is a difference, at least with the 32 gig iPod touch 2.

Let me add some more games, since I've got my old, cracked, coffee stained touch in front of me now:

The Piyo Blocks series (great little block swapping puzzles)
Birzzle (same sort, great in its own right)
Hyperlight (tilt based shooter with vector based graphics, so no prob w/ a child playing it)
Fly Kiwi Fly!
Rocket Bird
Supercow
All Pangea games apparently
Minigore (cartoony, probably fine for a 7 year old...then again I saw Aliens in the movie theater at about that age)
FMX Riders (bloodless, great 3d motorbike racer)
Robot wants Kitty (age appropriate platformer)
The Sims games
Flick Homerun

If you think he might like a tower defense game, The Scamps! is adorable (and still one of my favorites).

If your son likes racing games, I'd definitely recommend Sonic All Stars Racing. It's really kid friendly (I personally found the AI easier to beat than the AIs in other racing games), and ran great on my 2nd gen.

edit: Swordigo runs fine on a 2nd gen - great action platformer, and imo isn't too violent for a 7 year old

There is no difference in second gen iPod Touches. The difference came with 3rd gen iPod Touches.

Where the 8gb "3rd" gen iPod Touch was really just a second gen iPod Touch. Unlike the 32 and 64 gb versions which were true 3rd gen iPod Touches.

Good God man, wth did you do with your 2nd gen?!?



Also on a side note: the specs are all the same for the 2nd generation iPod touch. They didn't even introduce a 64gb model until the 3rd generation; which is where the specs differed. The 8gb 3rd gen has the same specs as the 2nd generation iPod touch. End. Of. Rant.

It works fine, just a bit laggy.

Back to the topic.
Dropped it on concrete.
Dropped it on tile.
spilled my coffee on it.
It wasn't detecting the USB cable, so I sqooshed it (it was already dented)
Power button got a bit sunken in, so I sqooshed it some more.
The screen has smashed glass next to the volume buttons, and has cracks emanating from that point. This caused trouble with the volume buttons. So I sqooshed it more.
I've sat on it.
I've dropped it in the toilet.

It still works great
I really should upload photos of it. Oh, and no, its never had a screen protector or been in any case.

Wow... Takes a licking, and keeps on ticking...

Do you buy Apple care plus nowadays? Sounds like you need it.

Pretty much none of the new games support 2G devices at this point, they set the minimum iOS requirement to 4.3 on purpose, because Apple wants people to buy newer devices obviously.
