iPod Touch torn down

Room found for a camera

Just so we are all clear, when Steve Jobs said they did not want to put a camera in the iPod Touch he was saying it was due to the way the market saw the Touch. Of course this sounded so logical that most people bought it. However, after someone took a new iPod Touch apart there is new speculation about this issue.


You see once the Apple toy was torn apart a nice little spot for a camera was found. This adds fuel to the rumors that it was due to technical issues and not marketing that the camera was left out of the touch.


Still it could be there "just in case" the market demands one (sort of like they are now) I am sure this is the answer and is probably what we will hear in the few days from Apple. The tear down also found that the Touch has support for 802.11n wireless. However it is not enabled in the OS.
