    Default 4th Gen iPod With 5MP Camera, FaceTime in Sept?


    Rumors about the next iOS device refresh have begun in earnest, with a UK retailer speculating on a 4th generation iPod touch in September. The website Unbeatable.co.uk reports that at its "Xmas in July" event, John Lewis made a presentation that referenced reports from the supply chain about an iPod refresh that would add many iPhone 4 features, such as a gyroscope as well as a 5-megapixel camera. Reportedly, the new device would also have a front-facing camera and support FaceTime calling over WiFi.

    John Lewis is an upscale department store chain with 26 locations in England, Scotland and Wales. As "Britain's Favourite Department Store" according to a 2009 survey, and with a Royal Warrant to provide household goods to the Queen, the retailer carries a lot of market clout. Its sources may well be pretty good, but the prediction is also almost certainly informed by a lot of speculation. The fourth-generation iPod touch John Lewis said, will be aimed squarely at "youth/kids," with gaming and multimedia features. According to Unbeatable's report on the John Lewis presentation, the new iPod touch will get "motion sensors" for gaming, The article wasn't specific about what those are supposed to be, but was clear that that they would be something different than the gyroscope and accelerometer. The new device is also said to be able to take HD video with the back-facing camera, and allow FaceTime calling over WiFi with the front-facing camera.

    September is becoming the traditional release date for new iPod models, with refreshes of either the iPod nano or touch (or both) coming every year since 2005. So a refresh of the line is pretty well guaranteed this year, the only question is what features we'll see.

    This is not new someone find the engadget article that has the parts being made with pictures of the manufacturer in Taiwan for the new touch's.

    I remember as fact it had a hole for a front facing camera!

    I will try and find it came out 2 weeks before iPhone 4 came out to help search for it!

    The article above is for the older version with a 2MP camera, but is that even out yet?

    This would be cool, but I am a little skeptical, namely because all those features are pretty much what was new about the iPhone 4...

    Two weeks ago called... They want their old news back. Lol. I believe it was on endgadget. Of course with all the iPhone reception issues that people were hung up on this was overlooked.

    I just hope it doesn't look that much like the iphone, not because it is ugly or anything but because i would like a product differentiation.

    That's why I think iPad early adopters were naive.

    iPhone 4 and this iPod Touch 4G is getting better specs than the iPad.

    I'll wait for the second gen.

    Still old news. Lol. New and great news would be.....

    The devs have done it again!!! The true power of the iPhone 4 gets unleashed with the infamous jailbreak. Lol.

    In the mean time I patiently wait and pass my idevice news addiction by reading rumors and hateful posts on how evil apple is. ;-)

    Hmmmmmm. I was gonna get a new 3rd generation iPod because my 8GB 2nd gen just isn't cutting it. If this actually proves true, I will definetly get one of these instead. A Camera would be great.

    Seriously, if Apple would endorse Jailbreaking, Apple would make more money, and so would all the Dev's that make jailbreak apps. idk about the rest of you, but if Apple were to endorse this, I'd definetly pay for any of the apps I have on my phone from Cydia that are free.

    I see this happening. Unless FaceTime rolls out to other devices soon, Steve said at WWDC FaceTime would be on 10s of million of devices by the end of the year
