This one took us a bit by surprise. Believe it or not, the 2nd generation iPod Touch got quite a boost in umph – yes, that’s the technical term – and Apple didn’t even bother telling us about it. While the 1st generation iPod Touch and both iPhone models feature processors running at a respectable 412 MHz, the newer iPod Touch model received a substantial boost to 532 MHz. Why would Apple keep quiet about what amounts to nearly a 30% increase in processor speed? We’re really not sure. Maybe Stevie didn’t want to detract from Apple’s current star infielder and get potential and buyers wondering why the iPhone 3G didn’t get the same steroid cocktail. Whatever the case may be, iPhone 3G owners wondering why a game seems so much smoother on their buddy’s iPod Touch – well, it is.
