    I don't own an iPod Touch, but have been keeping tabs on it for others. I do have an iPhone 3GS though. So my info is not comprehensive, and may be inaccurate. FWIW.

    what are the differences between ipod touch 2nd gen and 3rd gen?
    3rd gen has a faster processor and better graphics capabilities. It comes with the earbuds with remote/volume control/mic, I believe.

    and graphically how much different is it to the iphone 3gs?
    It's the same as the iPhone 3GS

    would there be a newer ipod touch comming soon? ps i only want a 8 or 16gb at most
    If you get the 8GB, it looked to be the 2nd gen. I think the 3rd gen only comes in 32 or 64GB.

    There are only rumors of a "3rd gen" with a camera, since this one didn't come with one. I haven't seen any speculation on a release date, or if it's even true. Typically, the new iPods mostly come out in the September time frame.

    is there some games that can only be played on iphone and not the ipod touch
    Not that I know of, unless there is a game that requires the use of the camera or compass (I haven't heard if the 3rd gen touch has a compass). It's possible that as time goes on, games developed with better graphics will only be available for the iPhone 3GS and 3rd gen iPod Touches.

    and also if i get a ipod touch with the new firmware in it can i restore it back and jailbreak it?
    I don't know much about jailbreaking at this time.

    My father-in-law had an iPod Touch 2nd gen and loved it, except for the fact that he wanted the data connection everywhere. So he just bought an iPhone 3GS. I would tend to agree with him. I do like how thin the iPod Touch is though.

    Hopefully this helps.

    following is the diffence between the devices

    There is no email client on the iPod Touch
    There is no Maps application on the iPod Touch
    There are no Stocks or Weather widgets on the iPod Touch
    There is no built-in camera for the iPod Touch
    There are no Blutooth capabilities for the iPod Touch
    The iPod Touch has a differently styled "Dock," with a reflective surface -- akin to the Dock that will debut with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
    While the iPod Touch is sleeping, the user can tap the home button twice to bring up touch controls on the screen -- a feature the iPhone currently lacks
    The iPod Touch has a separate Contacts app -- it's built into the Phone application on the iPhone
    The iPod Touch has separate Video and Music apps, whereas the iPhone has a single "iPod" app that contains these functions
    There is apparently (and obviously) no microphone on the iPod Touch, though it will be interesting to see if such audio-in capabilities could be enabled via a third-party device.
    The iPod touch's headphone jack is on the bottom of the device
    The iPod touch lacks a built-in external speaker
    The iPod touch's screen appears to be of a slightly higher quality than the iPhone, with 163 pixels per inch to the iPhone's 160 pixels per inch.

    Actually the 3rd Gen iPod touch does have:
    email client
    maps app
    stocks & weather (although I could do without)
    Bluetooth
    and external speaker.

    The email and the ability to use this as a PDA thanks to wifi and google sync is why I ditched my BB and made the jump. Although after a week I am ready for a full fledged iPhone; just need to keep telling myself that I can wait until the end of summer when I have an upgrade.
