    has anyone thought that maybe if you installed the iPhone firmware on to an iPod touch that it could unlock bluetooth? Or maybe that would just totally brick your iPod. Anyone brave enough to try it?

    the iPod doesn't have the correct hardware. That's like me installing wireless Internet drivers on a pc with no wireless and crossing my fingures and hoping i could get Internet...

    UPDATE 2: From iFixit: We're looking into it. It's hard to say because they can disguise bluetooth antenna on the PCB and the chip could be integrated into something else. I'll see what I can dig up.[ifixit

    From what we are told, a Bluetooth antenna (if it existed) could be integrated into a PCB like this one, making identification difficult. The 'RF1UB' marking on the back of the board indicates that it's been designed for RF, and probably tested at frequency. So, while we don't see evidence of a Bluetooth antenna, we cannot rule out its existence.
    To make it perfectly clear: We cannot confirm nor deny the presence of Bluetooth in this device.
