Apple is widely expected to refresh the iPod lineup this August. In 2009 Apple held its annual music/iPod event in September where they announced the new iPod touch, iPod nano and more.
We’ve been tracking rumors of fourth gen iPod touch which is due this fall and among the predictable features which include higher resolution display and Apple’s A4 processor we have reported some pretty convincing reports which suggest that the new iPod touch will feature a front and back facing camera too.
FaceTime for iPhone 4 currently works between two iPhone 4 users. Apple would certainly be looking at increasing the number of devices which feature the new video calls feature so there is a strong possibility that the new iPod touch will finally feature a camera.
If you were wondering how would FaceTime calls work on an iPod touch then iOS 4.1 beta 3 provides us the details. It turns out that Apple will allow FaceTime to use email addresses to initiate video calls. This would enable iPod touch 4 users to use the service too.
MacRumors recently reported that an iPhone parts supplier sent them images of the front LCD and bezel of the upcoming 4th generation iPod Touch. The panel is labeled “Apple (c) 2010″ and has a front-sided hole which many are speculating to be in place for the camera.
iPhone and iPod accessories makers have often revealed details about upcoming Apple products and HardMac obtained illustrations of next gen iPod touch from an iPod case manufacturer. The website has claimed that their source has been very reliable in the past and the design seems to have a rounded back and will feature camera and flash too.
