iPod Touch 3rd Generation vs 2nd Generation?

The 3rd generation of iPod touches looks identical to the 2nd generation models, but the capacities and prices are improved: 8GB ($199), 32GB ($299), and 64GB ($399).
What other differences are between the iPod Touch 3rd Generation vs 2nd Generation?

The $299 32GB and $399 64GB Touches gain 3GS specs - roughly 2x faster, with more advanced 3D graphics for games that capitalize on OpenGL 2.0 - and features like Voice Control.

Minus, inexplicably, the camera.

The $199 8GB Touch is exactly the same as the second-generation Touch, just $30 less. A la the $99 iPhone.

Out of the box, the third-generation iPod Touch includes an amazing music player, podcast support, video playback (including iTunes rentals and a YouTube player), a Safari Web browser, photo viewer, an e-mail reader (compatible with Outlook, Exchange, MobileMe, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, or any POP e-mail service), an integrated iTunes Store for music and video downloads, and a host of smaller utilities (weather, calendar, maps, stocks, notes, voice memos, clock, contacts, and calculator). Provided become proficient with its touch-screen keyboard, the iPod Touch is more pocket PC than an MP3 player.

There's no built-in video camera, which is a bit of a surprise, considering the less-expensive and much-tinier nano got one. With the touch, Apple's focus remains firmly on music, and, more so than ever, portable gaming. Along with a nice speed bump come some app organization improvements and new Genius features, all of which are welcome additions. Even if there's no exciting surprise with this touch iteration, after three long years, there's still not a better portable media player out there.

Basically 3rd Generation vs 2nd Generation is the same with some enhancements.
