    What is the difference between the current and previous version of the touch? Im considering getting one, and the current version is $60 more than the previous one for the 8GB model.

    The processor in the current version is around 50% faster than the previous version and it has support for that Nike running shoe thing. I don't know if there are any other differences.

    I'm pretty sure its a little sensor that goes into your Nike shoe and it will keep track of your workout via the iPod.

    The new one supports a headset with a mic. With this you can use apps like Fring or Truphone for VoIP.

    new one is also thinner. i have an 8gb first gen touch and i can't imagine it any thinner, i'd be scared of cracking it in half

    I have the iPod Touch 2G and this is the only thing that pisses me off about it... I hope DevTeam fixes this eventually
