    Few comparisons from 3rd to 4th Generation
    Looking at purchasing an IPod Touch.

    Couple of questions:

    I have the option of picking up a 3rd or a 4th Generation. After doing way to much reading here are a few questions I want make sure I understand:

    ***Does the 3rd Gen have a speaker?****

    Not sure which generation has this but is a 3rd Gen able to make vice recordings using a built-in microphone? I would like to be able to use this as a voice recorder for note taking or recoding quick thoughts while driving. Is this possible on any and specifically the 3rd?

    Can the 3rd OR 4th act as a GPS unit?
    Can the 3rd Gen handle ebooks? I read something on the apple page that promoted e-books on the 4th but it is not mentioned on the 3rd.

    The 3rd gen does NOT have a built in microphone but you can use earbuds with a microphone, while the 4th gen has a built in microphone.
