    Folks at iFixit have disassembled the new iPod Touch released by Apple at this week’s special event. It has revealed some interesting details.

    Apple had announced that the third generation iPod Touch is up to 50% faster and had double the capacity as compared to the second generation iPod Touch. But looks like there are some more hardware differences.

    Folks at iFixit have revealed that the new iPod Touch has a Broadcom BCM4329 combination Wi-Fi/Bluetooth chip, which supports the 802.11n Wi-Fi standard in addition to 802.11a/b/g standards.

    iPhone 3GS and the second generation iPod Touch use a BCM4325 chip, which supports only the 802.11a/b/g standards.

    As of now, the new iPod Touch supports only the 802.11a/b/g standards like iPhone 3GS and the second generation iPod Touch but it means that Apple has the option to activate 802.11n capability in the new iPod touch sometime in the future with a firmware update.

    The wireless radio component specification distributed with iPhone OS 3.0 beta had also revealed support for the Broadcom BCM4329 chip.

    In addition to support for the faster 802.11n standard, the BCM4329 chip also supports reception and transmission of FM signals, which could also be used to pick up FM radio music, news and sports broadcasts.

    Though Steve Jobs has given us his reasons for no camera in the new iPod Touch, iFixit has revealed that there is a small empty space at the top of the device (approximately 6 mm x 6 mm x 3 mm) between the Broadcom chip and the wireless antenna where a camera used in the iPod nano could fit. They have also pointed out that iPod touch doesn’t seem to be thick enough to adequately house an autofocus camera found in the iPhone 3GS, which we were expecting.

    well this thread clears everything up. Looks like the camera function was replaced with even bigger/better hardware updates
