iFixit tears down iPod nano and 3rd gen iPod Touch
image source: iFixit
iFixit published their teardowns of the new 3rd generation 32 GB iPod Touch and the iPod nano today, and made some interesting observations: chief among them was the fact that the Touch's wireless chip supports 802.11n, the wireless standard that promises raw theoretical max throughput up to 450 Mbits/sec. That fact, as well as the discovery that there's more than enough room in the Touch's chassis for the camera on the iPod nano, has the rumor mills churning about future upgrades to the platform.
3rd generation iPod Touch:
- newer ARM processor
- 30-hour rated 1080 mAh battery
- Samsung 32 GB NAND flash on two chips
- Broadcom wireless chipset supports 802.11n in addition to a/b/g
- 6mm x 6mm x 3mm empty space: room for 5th gen iPod Nano camera?
- Toshiba flash
- no room for a larger camera
- 17.5% larger display than previous iPod nano

I recon they are just stalling they're ideas so they have something else to release in a few months time. they'll just wait till everyone has the latest upgrades and then they will release the touch with a camera.

Nice. If Apple is putting a camera in the ipod touch with in the six months. I will be very upset because I just brought an ipod touch.

Its a bit weird that the Nano has flash but the iPhones don't.

Why sell the cow when people are more than happy to pay for the milk? The way I see it, apple can see if the market is even interested in a camera in the ipod with the nano. Then instead of lowering the price on the touch to compete with the zune release, they can include the camera in a refresh at the same price point...
Probably make apple an extra billion dollars along the way!
