OS 3.1.3 FREE for iPod touch users

Preamble: One of the most frustrating times for all of the owners of the iPod Touch is when Apple release a new OS version which requires money. Till now, there have been 3 such pay-to-play updates, costing owners up to 30$. Thanks to this, a significant percentage of the iPod Touch owners still run the good old 2.2.1.

Declaration: Well, iPod touch owners rejoice! Apple have finally waived the upgrade fee starting with iPhone OS 3.1.3. If you have been stuck with 2.2.1, either waiting for new hardware, or for a better allowance, your wait is over. You can download 3.1.3, enjoy all the features of 3.0, and not pay a dime. Of course, 3.1.3 isn’t yet Jailbreaked, so if you really want Cydia or Rock apps, you will have to wait a while, but at least OS 3.x is available for nothing!

All of this may also point to the iSlate.
