I didn’t buy one of the new 4th generation iPod touch models (nor do I plan to). However, my 1st generation iPod touch had an iPhone OS 3.1.1 update available for it when I plugged it in to iTunes. As you might guess, the update for the iPod touch is a subset of the one for the iPhone. Some of the interesting updates it shares with the 3.1 update for the iPhone are:

– Remotely lock iPod touch with a passcode via MobileMe
– Anti-phishing feature for Safari
– Improved Exchange calendar syncing and invitation handling

The update for the iPhone itself includes the following new iPhone-specific features:

– Save video from Mail & MMS into Camera Roll
– Save as new clip after trimming a video (3GS)
– Better iPhone 3G (specfically) WiFi performance when Bluetooth is turned
– Voice control on 3GS with Bluetooth headsets
– Paste phone numbers into keypad
