    Thanks for the replies:) I think I'll go with a iPod Touch 32GB 3rd gen. The 4th gen is just way to expensive. On eBay the pre-order(4G) is $440.

    Who pre-orders from eBay? Directly from Apple the 32GB model is $299.

    The iPod touch 4g is confirmed to only have 256 MB of RAM by ifixit, which is the same amount in the 3g. Just a quick fyi. :)

    Yeah but the iPhone 3G is over two years old.

    The new Touch is basically supposed to be iPhone4 with the phone part stripped out, so that's the only handset it should be compared directly to.
    And that comparison doesn't work out in the Touch's favour.

    Well, yes and no. There are some differences: the screen on the new Touch is not IPS, although it has the same resolution. It's also slightly dimmer than the iPhone 4 screen. The rear-facing camera is also different, and is of far lower quality than the iPhone 4's camera.

    I think Iain meant the line more in terms of functionality rather than pure 1 to 1 comparison. The Touch now basically can do most of what the iPhone can do now sans the phoning part.

    I'm aware it's not a perfect copy, which is something of a departure from previous editions of the Touch but it's still by far the closest comparable version of the iPhone.


    Sort of halfway between the two but thank you for helping clarify it a bit :)

    oops. I meant it as iPod Touch 3g, so it would be more direct comparison.
