Ipod Touch Questions (and maybe some answers)

So I got this new 3G Ipod Touch and would like to get some accessories for it (Case, chargers, etc.) I'm seeing quite a bit of accessories for the 2G Touch (bundles under $10 are nice) but not too much for the 3G.

To my question, does 2G cases and chargers work with the 3G Touch?

I'm looking at getting this Bundle, for $6 why not, but am concerned that I may only be able to use the case.

I'm also thinking about a leather case with a cover, anyone have an opinion on if they are a pain, nice to have, and what ones are good?

Thanks much.

It should work. The external physical dimensions are identical between 2G and 3G for the Touch.

I highly recommend this case and some sort of screen protector

That case has some good reviews, funny how every color it comes in has a different price. Thanks for the recommendation.

I like this case: http://www.amazon.com/SwitchEasy-Ske...2649285&sr=1-6

It is a good combination of hard case and rubberized.

I bought it here, take a look through: http://www.switcheasy.com/products/R...RebelTouch.php

It comes with a bunch of crap, including screen protectors, and a stand for watching movies

They also have some chargers, etc.

I went with the Speck Candyshell: http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products...671616&sr=1-19 . There are other colors.

I also covered the entire Ipod with a skin from BestSkinsEver: http://www.bestskinsever.com/servlet...n--dsh-/Detail . They are similar to InvisibleShield, but about 50-60 percent less in price.

Another case option. I have a white version for my iPhone and wife has pink. It has been a great case.
