I won't be buying an iPod touch 3G - too expensive in Korea and with new hardware due out in September/October, I'll probably shoot for the lowest end of the new ones unless, like this generation, the lowest one is just a re-badged previous gen.
Well, we have some options: Jailbreak to obtain our multitasking, OR, an option which has no adverse effect on battery: carry another iPod touch. 2G's are cheap now and they are slim and in one hand, I can read a book and the other, carry on a chat session. What do you think?
Honestly, what do you think now that we know iPhone OS 4.0 won't support multitasking for older touch 2G and 3G users.
