    After the frustration triggered by the lack-lustr Apple event I've been thinking: would it be possible to just add a iPhone camera module to the Touch 2G? is there such connecter in the 2G logic board? I mean, after all both devices have lots hardware in common...

    The iPod touch is jam packed with all sorts of techy sh*t. There's no room left unless you plan on leaving a big bump in the back of your backing to the touch.

    Good luck.

    The only thing you could do is make a camera attachment to the 30-pin connector.

    Not going to happen.
    It won't fit. That, and the iPod touch firmware doesn't support a camera.

    So, even if you manage to jam one in there and connect it, the iPod won't recognize it.

    That's a great idea! I'm wondering why someone hasn't done it

    Would would be even cooler is if someone made a case that you slid your iPod into that had a dock connector on it, with the camera built into the case.

    If only..
    (Also, that case would be rather large.)

    This would only be a mod that one of the dev-team members would make... Muscle nerd for instance, he made that cable that connected two iPods to each other lol.

    hmm... for the experts: what is the possibility for taking the back off of the ipt (which ever gen) and adding the iphone back (more space) and the camera module somehow?? idk... just a thought.

    Though for all intents and purposes the Touch is just an iPhone sans phone&camera logic, the circuit(boards) are very different

    Your best bet is a dongle on the dock connector.
