    Is there really bluetooth in the iPod touch, disabled until Apple decides to enable it for another $9.95? Some people say no, but there actually is.

    There has always been Broadcom BCM4325 Bluetooth chips in iPod touches, but they were never advertised. Take a closer look at these photos, from an Apple employee recently:

    Yes, as you can see in the top right hand corner of the iPod touch, Bluetooth is enabled on a iPod touch. It was said that Apple will release a new firmware very soon to enable Bluetooth on the iPhone's little cousin. This lucky Apple employee got to try it out on a first-generation iPod touch, and snapped some photos.

    Now, it'll be interesting to see how a Bluetooth-enabled touch will affect iPhone sales...

    well this depends on how the bluetooth is applied. kuz its just like cellphones. almost all of them have bluetooth, but with different uses for it. for example ihad a phone which you kould only use bluetooth to send contacts which was retarded, but then my mom got phone with which you can send songs nd media along with contacts and sh*t like that.

    so hopefully this bluetooth can do more than just contacts or wireless syncing or some sh*t like that

    "We did not find the CSR Bluetooth chip that the iPhone has. However, there are several Apple-branded chips that we didn't identify, so we cannot completely rule out the presence of a Bluetooth chip.

    Found that on 1g ipod touch - So Might be true
