    where did that bloke go? the one with the ipod touch 3G with the built in camera (the fake one before launch)

    couldn't we just hard mod the ipod touch. put a iphone mobo in it (with the Flash chips) so that you can install the iphoneOS onto it (with the camera application) (not forgetting faster processor)

    hang on. broken iphone of ebay= £80
    new plastic Back = £10
    new screen and mobo(or any repairs) = £30
    anti static matting = £10
    Air duster can = £5
    time=Free
    80+10+30+10+5+free=£145

    to own an iphone that ain't half bad

    Sorry going off topic sliltly. what i was trying to say is surely we could add a camera to are ipod touches?

    Yes, That infact was really prototype what in the world made you think it was fake... It was even confirmed after iPod touch 3G was introduced.. If you dont believe me... Go watch those pictures and open your iPod and watch that space (TOTALLY EMPTY) for camera..... Thats exactly where the prototype had camera...!

    P.S = That was one of the very rare cases where a feature from prototype was dropped instead of being added to it... not to mention a major feature with alots of demand.

    Agreed!

    PLUS ... once you have the camera mod done, good luck with firmware/software to use it ...

    Again, i second what "theLorax" said.

    ...srsly, if your going to go through all that trouble.
    Just save up some money and get an iPhone, jailbreak it and use it as an iPod Touch.

    /shrug
    Or put that effort into telling apple to enable bluetooth photo transfers between other devices (other than ipod touches and iPhones)
