For almost a year now I have lived with and used my iPod touch quite happily under the false impression that, as advertised, it was a 3rd generation. It is, however, only a 2nd generation ipod touch, as it cannot use features such as iOS 4 multitasking. If you are looking for an ipod touch which can multitask, and do other 3rd generation things, do not get this! Get a 32gb or a 64gb, they are 3rd generations. I am not discouraging you to buy an iPod touch, because they are fantastic, just pointing out that, if you want something that runs the latest operating systems properly, don't get this. Being honest, you will find that if you splash out on a 4th generation, your money wont be wasted, because they come with plenty of exciting new features. This product is false advertised and I am not happy that this is only a 2nd generation iPod.
