Lacking standard USB connection; forced to use apple's proprietary docking connector

lower end model remains the same as the previous generation - 8GB, older internal components, poor value and a complete scam compared to new competition

3 agree

Features on this are no better than those on the HTC Hero, which is correctly priced.

2 agree

not the greatest value when compared to getting an iPhone - despite high data costs

1 agrees

not a great update for those uninterested in gaming

1 agrees

Poor Battery Life (30 Hours audio)- Should be at least 50 as compared to competition

The Apple iPod Touch 3rd-Gen is visually identical to the 2nd generation of iPod Touch, the differences are all on the inside. Its has been updated to match the iPhone 3GS including a new 833MHz ARM-Cortex 8 processor. The price for the new power is a drop in battery life, from 36 hours to 30 hours of audio. That isn't the only drop the Apple iPod Touch 3rd-Gen has experienced - the 2008 8GB iPod touch cost $229, while the 2009 versions are priced at $199 for the 8GB ($30 drop in price), $299 for the 32GB and $399 for the 64GB. The two higher priced sizes, the 32GB and the 64GB, are double the capacity from the 2008 products and all of the 2009 models are capable of running OpenGL 2.0 which Steve Jobs said was to further the Touch as a gaming platform.
