  • Apple Slips Up, iPod 3G Photo Spotted On Website



    Apple is becoming notorious for accidentally leaking photos of future products on their website, with the most recent flub up involving a picture of a 3G enabled iPod Touch.

    An iDownloadblog reader spotted on Apple's website the above image displaying a 3G signal indicator on what is obviously an iPod Touch. The web exploded with the information shortly after, and Apple noticed, taking down the old photo replacing the 3G iPod Touch with the current generation. However, a number of Apple's international stores including the U.K. still have the photo of the 3G iPod Touch up on their iTunes landing page.

    Whether this is an actual accidental leak by Apple, a mistake by a now embarrassed designer, or a ploy by Apple to generate buzz is unknown.

      Someone simply used a screenshot from the iPhone on the iPod Touch. That's all.

      I hope I'm wrong, because if they release an iPod Touch 3G then screw that black-hole of a financial investment called the iPhone.
      hmm and I always thought they took new products outside so a homeless guy could hold them for the shoot.

      The ways i'm looking at it is that there is a 3G iPad, why not a 3G iPod Touch lol. And what about iOS 5's iMessages. That would be a nice use for 3G on an iPod when theres no wi-fi around. Also 3G FaceTime which will be available in iOS 5 as well.

      You would be able to do the same thing you can do with the iPad, put a phone sim card in it (one with a phone number) and install pad2phaone and use the default iOS phone app to make calls that would not use data but minuets instead like a phone.
      Yes sir. ATT would be happy to allow that to happen... Clearly I was wrong!

      Toktumi Line 2...

      It's in the app store and makes my iPad make calls with no problem. $10mo unlimited minutes and texts in US AND Canada. (No MMS though)

      This is Apples fail. I hope they will demonstrate iPhone 5 soon but until then, this is iPod Touch fifth generation with 3G.

      Yeah What are you talking about? You don't just "tell" an apple specialist that they screwed up. And secondly, they would already know btw as this thread states already. Not to be mean if it's coming out that way
