    Why does apple try to keep the ipod touch as thin as possible? I would rather have a camera instead of a few millimeters thinner.
    Does anyone care how thick it is?

    Well it should be thinner, theres no phone part to it. I cant see a camera making it thicker, but i would think they'd make it look similar to the iphone 4.

    Yes i should be a little thinner, but the conspiracy is that the ipod touch 3g didn't get a camera because they wanted it thin.

    They had a working prototype with a video camera. The reason Steve Jobs gave the press was that they saw the iPod Touch as a gaming device, but we all know it's just B.S. and there was probably some huge issue with the camera components they wanted to use.

    I dont think the new ipod touch's design will change much from current gen.
    I'd be very very surprised if they went for the iphone 4 design, and it doesn't make sense for apple to use iphone 4 design on the touch.

    IMO, there is nothing wrong with the iPod touch being thin. At least this makes it easier to keep the touch in your pocket, as compared with the rather bulky iPhone!

    Still, I hope the guys at Apple can keep the iPod touch in its current form-factor, despite the rumored addition of the camera in generation-4...
