There's a thread on this already. But I think it got closed.
Very interesting, the article. I agree with him and Apple.
I gotta admit, after readin the article snip, it actually made sense as to why. Apple is trying to make a gaming device, not a camera/ipod/radio/microphone/game player thing
And nothing to compete with it's better brother, iPhone.
exactly, their trying to seperate and differentiate their ipods rather than making them all the same.
Shuffle: Portability, limited space, but tiny size.
Nano: mediocre space, life altering apps, such as radio, and video camera
Touch: gaming device with touchscreen, also multimedia devidce with app store
iPhone: phone with camera and everything
If what he said was true, that Apple wanted to provide a cheap access to the AppStore apps and adding a camera would be too expensive, then they simply could have left the 8GB model the way it is and add the camera only to the new third generation 32GB and 64GB models. This way one would still have a cheap access to the AppStore with the 8GB model while the more expensive premium models provide the functionality one can aspect for this price. If he would be honest, he would have told that they did not add the camera to the iPod touch because they did not want to cannibalize the iPhone sales, while they had to add a camera, mic and FM tuner as additional gimmicks to the nano to revive the sales for this device which kinda lived in the shadow of his bigger brother ever since the iPod touch was released.
