    The 2rd generation iPod touch is incompatible with all of the things that iOS 5.0 brought, unlike the 3rd generation, which looks the same. It is stuck on iOS 4.2, which means that it will not be updated anymore and will not get any of the cool iOS 5 features, or even the iOS 4.3 phones. It is thin and light, but its shiny metal back warrants a case to prevent scratches. Its display is nothing special, but is bright and responsive. iOS is great and is the best for most customers of devices like this, but the 3rd generation would be better, because it is compatible with current software. Its speakers are nothing special, not loud or particularly accurate, but once again, are fine. Its processor can cause crashes with processor heavy games, which once again makes the 3rd generation a better choice. Its battery will last a day for most people in use similar to that of a smartphone. This is no longer available from Apple, but the newest iPod touch and the 3rd generation iPod touch (refurbished) are both available from Apple.

    I have owned a 2nd gen iPod touch for about a year.The devise feels nice in hand, with its metal back being cool and easy to grip. The display, while showing some pixels, is quite bright and clear. Running iOS 4.2.1 is a generally smooth experience, but is a little sluggish. While many apps still run on it, the battery life has greatly eroded. The built in speakers are very quiet and sound is distorted on the highest setting. Overall a solid device for its time.

    It's been a while since this "iPhone-minus-phone" revision 2 hit the market, but I despite this and owning an ipad and an iphone, I am still in love woth my 2G.
    Although lock button started to fail, once shiny aluminium back is scratched like a lottery card and software upfates officially will never get past the 4.2.1 mark, there is a lot to like about it.
    Pure Apple design. All major flaws of the first Touch fixed. Yes, it doesn't have a camera, but I would never use it if the iPod had one.
    What is disappointing, however, is the lack of a microphone,. You had to buy a headset to use Skype properly.
    Great device if you're on a budget and your kid want's an iPod for Christmas.
