    Apple insider reported

    "A rare misstep on Apple's part saw the world's tech darling surprise in an unusual way Wednesday, leaving onlookers scratching their heads at changes -- or lack thereof -- to certain members of the iPod family.

    For months, the evidence was overwhelming a camera on the fifth-generation iPod nano was as a strong likelihood, while one on the third-generation iPod touch seemed an undeniable certainty.

    But as the Cupertino-based firm's "It's Only Rock and Roll" event eased to a close, it was clear things were playing out contrary to expectations. The nano, the most affordable full-function iPod, had landed a video cam while the touch, the flagship of Apple's media player arsenal, had conspicuously not.

    In an interview with the New York Times, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs asserts the decision to keep a camera off the touch was financially driven. And while AppleInsider appreciates the company co-founder's play at damage control, it's a tough sell.

    Like the nano, people familiar with the matter maintain that initial plans for the new iPod touch called for a camera akin to the iPhone's. Manufacturing tooling was prepped and specifications issued some time ago.

    It should be noted that Apple retains an extensive cost analysis team that begins working with an established supply chain and new prospective partners on feature cost feasibility many months -- if not years -- in advance of production.

    These assessments are then refined, stitched into preliminary bills of materials, and presented for approval -- sometimes via elaborate Keynote documents -- to roughly two dozen members of electronics maker's top brass.


    Apple's new iPod nanos sport a video cam that the new iPod touches do not.


    According to those familiar with situation, management gave the green light to equip the latest-gen touches with cams last year. But problems, as AppleInsider reported earlier in the week, began to crop up with the third party camera sensors Apple took receipt of earlier this year.

    After several passes through quality assurance were met with less than stellar results in the time leading up to Wednesday's event, an executive decision was made a month ago to pull the cameras from the touches altogether, others familiar with the situation say. This is contrary to reports that suggest the matter unfolded in the final hours.

    Nevertheless, Apple reportedly remains committed to delivering camera capabilities on the touch lineup as soon as possible. This update could arrive unexpectedly at existing price points on the 32GB and 64GB models, according to a third person claiming to have been briefed on the matter.

    Further details will be published if and when information becomes available

    Hope agaiN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    UPDATE

    The Strange thing though is Apple never call this iPod "iPod touch 3rd Generation".

    ALots of proofs...

    in headphones compatiblity it says

    ALl ipods including iPod Nano (5th Generation) and iPod touch (2nd Generation).

    BUT NO MENTION OF 3rd Generation.

    IN support technical problems

    Its same Story! no 3rd Generation iPod touch mention!

    IF people Bullsh*t that its not updated thats a lie! because all new models are there other than iPod touch 3rd Generation..

    even nano 5th Gen.

    To me those things will be added when one with camera shows up!
    I am assuming apple would call that iPod (3rd Genearaton).

    That explains also why no one has this piece of ==ap yet! Read my post. Also the Nano can't take still pics. Im sure the IPOD could. Maybe thats the prb . The prb could be with the still pictures part. Obviously they couldn't do it on a Nano. They did mention something about sensors!

    You might have bought it but when did they say you will have it in your hands? Also if the one with the camera is the same price perhaps you might be able to echange it when it comes in. Did you think about that my fury friend?

    They say (ie FedEx) I will have it in my hands tomorrow. Also I said I will be pissed if it happens, not that I am pissed now. These are only rumors after all. And as we learned yesterday, rumors should rarely if ever be trusted.

    If Apple was going to release a iPod Touch with a camera, it would have been at yesterday's event... They wouldn't spend all the money on manufacturing/R&D on an iPod Generation that will only last only a few months. They would be taking a huge hit in the pocket for that...

    We will see a camera next year.

    the evidence for cameras for the ipod was overwhelming and it didn't happen. steve even said that it was a gaming device, and thats why they didn't have a camera. im not very open to believing rumors atm.
