    First of all this is my first post. I've been a regular reader here in IPTF but haven't registered and posted.

    So, I'm not here to complain why the 'new' Ipod touch 3rd gen does not have a camera or anything. I'm just here to point out that the Prototype of the 3rd gen Ipod touch that surfaced might have been real.

    Sorry if you already noticed, but I would like to point out the picture of the teardown of Ipod touch 3rd gen by ifixit.

    First, if you have a look at this picture, you could observe the top part of the Ipod touch internals. http://s2.guide-images.ifixit.com/igi/6BYVw1WkhyMcKNGO.large Okay, now that you did have a look at this http://www.ipodrepublic.com/ipod-touch/leaked-video-3rd-gen-ipod-touch-camera/2009/08/15/ No, not the video but the third picture. As you might have realized before the bottom of the two Ipods is the supposed to be 3rd gen.

    I want you to look close of the Ipod touch's top part from the second link I gave you. And then compare the picture of the 1st link I typed, side by side.

    As you could see now if you followed what I said, the chipsets are exactly in the same place and they are identical. Now, the motherboard of the Prototype 3rd gen is colored red. It might have been because its in a prototype stage and not intended for production yet.

    Tell me what you think, I'm not confirming anything so don't get your hopes up. I'm just saying that I think its weird. So tell me what you think.

    I think so too, but for whatever reason (defects?) they didn't include it :/

    EDIT: There's also a little space just right for a camera in the 3rd Gen, full story here

    Thanks for the positive response.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thought of this.

    Hell, if thickness is the issue, go ahead and make it thicker. Anyone against?

    No. And if you are to make it thicker (a reasonable amount of thickness, mind you...) re-design it.

    well, i looked at the full story, and i heard that the nano's camera would take horrid still pics (why am i not surprised, its a vga) and thats why they didn't enable it. i think the top of the ipod would have to be 3mm thicker for the camera to fit, but i wonder how thick that plastic thing they have in the area is...
