The iPod Touch 3rd Generation

iPod Touch 3rd Generation... nearly perfect for almost everybody

I've mentioned by the time of the Touch 2nd Gen, the OS had "finger forgiveness" baked in a bit better so instead the display assembly was basically 2 parts and repairs were able to be made more simply.

The upper glass had the digitizer laminated to the bottom of it and those parts were glued to a plastic bezel which is sometimes referred to as a "mid-chasiss".

That was still true in the 3rd Gen Touch. In fact very little had changed between the second and third Gen.

Of course none of the parts were interchangeable, that would make things too easy. The physical layout of the device is similar, but all the plugs and jacks are different so there can be no "inter-breeding" let's say. That's standard Apple work though.

The one thing that was added to the 3rd Gen was Blue Tooth wireless connectivity. In case at some later time the iOS was capable of sending data to a printer for printing.

A cracked upper glass on the 3rd Gen was replaceable affordably. And like the 2nd Gen if your 3rd Gen Touch and the LCD became a "white out" LCD, the LCD could be replaced uniquely.

The 3rd Gen also has the small piezo built in speaker and volume controls on the side.

The 3rd gen is probably the best of the 4 versions of an iPod Touch made. The way you can tell you have a Touch 3rd Gen in your hand is the serial number is engraved at the bottom right of the summary paragraph on the chrome backplate.

I am not a fan of the Touch 4th Gen model.
