The iPod touch Generation 3 was very similar to the iPod touch Generation 2 and was released around the same time as the iPhone 3GS. This iPod touch had features similar to the iPhone 3GS, except the iPod touch did not include 3G/EDGE (phone), A-GPS, digital compass, or an integrated camera.
The 32 and 64 GB Generation 3 iPod touch models are the same externally as the Generation 2, but had 50% faster performance, OpenGL graphics, and ran up to iOS version iOS 5.1.1.
The iPod touch Generation 3 included a multi-touch 3.5-inch display (320×480), accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and 802.11b/g/n. It used a 30-pin connector, included a stereo headphone jack, VoiceOver voice control, and shipped with the same Earphones with Remote and Mic as the iPhone 3GS.
