It's a little late, but I've wanted to say this for a while. When Apple released the 3G iPod Touch and some people got angry, those who didn't get angry said things like "Just because they didn't put in what you said they should doesn't mean you should be angry. They never told you they would." This makes sense, but it is irrelevant. Nobody was angry about the camera specifically. We were angry at Apple's statement as to why there wasn't a camera: The iPoT was now being viewed as a window to the App Store, rather than the high-end device it originally was. They wanted people to spend money in the App Store, but they need to get there first, so Apple made the new iPod Touch cheaply so that they could sell it for a low price. Normally this wouldn't be annoying. Price cut? Great! But not at the cost of quality. The iPod Touch was released as a high-end device. People paid the original $300+ price tag because of this. It was what made the Touch the Touch. Now, they are instead focusing on making it like every other one. Affordable. It's still the most expensive iPod, but not by so much. And the worst part is now we have to compromise on features. You can get a camera and FM radio, but then you won't have Internet and the App Store. And there is no new alternative that packs all the features. You have no choice but to compromise. Now you can say what you want, but you absolutely have to admit that when the original Touch came out, you didn't have to compromise. The top-price iPod had all the features of those below it, and the ones that made it top-price. Now, you have to chose between one of the two.
