iPod Touch Tear Down Shows Space for Camera
A disassembly of Apple's latest iteration of the iPod touch shows that there's room for a camera in there. Actually scratch that, there isn't just room for a camera, there's a camera shaped hole that wasn't there before.
When Apple last week announced the new iPod touch and iPod nano, I joked that they'd probably put a camera in the iPod touch next year. I'm hoping that isn't the case but you never know, given that they're already taking space for a camera into account when it comes to manufacturing the device.
Check out the images below. The first image is from a tear down done by the folks at iFixit. You'll notice the little gap at the top of the device. The second picture is a leaked image from a few months ago; back when the whole camera thing was all rumors and reports. The gap you're seeing in the image below the tear down is filled with something similar to the camera found in the iPod nano.
Is there anyone considering waiting a year to see if Apple launches an iPod touch with a camera next year? Let us know in the comments below.
