    Default NY Times asks, Steve answers: Why no camera on the iPod touch and no stills on the na
    Even the NY times were questioning about no camera on the iPod Touch

    * Why doesn't the iPod nano take still pictures?
    That reason, he said, is technical: the sensors you need to record video are extremely thin these days—thin enough to fit into the wafer-thin Nano. But the ones with enough resolution for stills, especially with autofocus (like the sensor in the iPhone), are much too thick to cram into a player that’s only .02 inches thick."
    * What about a camera for the iPod touch? "
    Originally, we weren’t exactly sure how to market the Touch. Was it an iPhone without the phone? Was it a pocket computer? What happened was, what customers told us was, they started to see it as a game machine,” he said. “We started to market it that way, and it just took off. And now what we really see is it’s the lowest-cost way to the App Store, and that’s the big draw. So what we were focused on is just reducing the price to $199. We don’t need to add new stuff. We need to get the price down where everyone can afford it.”
    however. i dont think this means there wont be a camera on the iPod.
