  • iBooks: More than a great ebook reader, iBooks is also an amazing place to browse and shop for books, day or night.
  • Folders: Organize apps into folders with drag-and-drop simplicity. Get faster access to your favorites and browse and manage up to 2160 apps.
  • Better Mail: See messages from all your accounts in a unified inbox, organize messages by threads, open attachments in third-party apps, and more.
  • Customizable backgrounds for the Home screen

Several of the features like multitasking require more advanced hardware and are therefore only available on the iPhone 3GS and 3rd-generation iPod touch.

You can use the update feature in iTunes to download iOS 4. The iOS 4 update for the 3rd-gen iPod Touch is around 366.5MB and it is 315MB for the 2nd-gen.
