    We was all here same time last year saying the 3rd gen would have a camera - how wrong we were. It will probably only be 3 megapixels at the most, buy a digital camera if you want good quality!

    I would love for it to have a camera, even if it isn't the best quality, or even a microphone. Just something different at least.

    Im thinking it wont have a back facing camera, I think it will have a front facing camera that will make use of facetime, as im sure apple want to promote this feature a lot more than just on the iPhone 4, giving the ability to facetime between an iPod and an iPhone will make the feature more usable to more people, which is what apple want.
    I also think they will include the retina display, a gyroscope and the A4 chip, this means the iPod will be able to keep up with upcoming intense games from the appstore as much as the iPhone 4 can.

    There were some images on Macrumors with potential ipt4g front covers with holes for a front facing camera.

    -All new design (bound to happen)
    - A4 SoC (almost a fact)
    -Retina display (very likely )
    -Facetime/front cam (reasonable, since apple would like to push its video chat protocol)
    -Gyroscope (very likely to keep apps functionality across iphone and ipod)
    -Camera and Mic(we sure hope so, but we never know with apple)
    -Fm radio (who knows, maybe apple will surprise us)

    Add microphone to the poll if you can.

    Also if it does have a camera it will have to have a new design because the iPod touch 4 will need to be larger, same if it has the A4 chip.

    I voted for:
    1. A4
    2. Retina Display
    3. Gyroscope
    4. Camera or video camera

    Because:
    1. They're probably making this processor universal to all of their new devices, as it's their own and we know how Apple is with making their own hardware
    2. Steve's pretty proud of the retina display and to allow developers to program apps for all devices, they need to incorporate the same graphics as well (imo)
    3. Same reason, I think that games are going to start being designed with a gyroscope in mind, then all new devices will need to have it. Otherwise you'll kill the iPod Touch market (they may want to keep people buying the iPhone, but I doubt they'd kill any one of their markets)
    4. Because they were supposed to add a camera before, and it's just about time. The iPod Nano never needed a camera, yet with the iPod Touch it just seems to be fit in perfectly. So it's about time.


    All this talk of FaceTime, I won't be surprised if it's NOT included, but at the same time it looks to be pretty likely. If so, well I'll be pretty pleased. Not that I talk to a lot of people with my current video chat capabilities, but it's an advancement into the future I think.

    Also, I hope they add a microphone. It's a huge pain to have to use the headphones all the time.
