Apple Job Listings Tease More Camera Goodness for Next Gen iPhones... and iPod?

iPhone Camera

While "patent peeping" shows what Apple might be doing in the far flung future, the equally voyeuristic "job watching" gives a slightly better idea of what's going to be happening in the now and soon. With that in mind, following up on rumors of the next generation iPhone packing a 3.5 or 5 megapixel camera, it's nice to see Apple looking for a Camera Project Manager and Camera Design Engineer. points out:

The most intriguing part of the job listing is that they mention integrating a camera into an iPod as well.

Could it simply be a boilerplate mixup, or is the iPod touch 3,1 (likely to debut this fall at the next iPod/Music Special Event) going to be packing it's own megapixel surprise?

Isn't this something they posted last year too?

Steve says:

I can see it now... we'll soon be able to add transitions, titles, and aged film effects to videos we take with our iPhones, but we still won't have ToDos or Junk Mail filters.

Muero says:

Junk mail filters? What kind of arcane e-mail are you using that you need junk mail filters on each device you use for access?

Steve says:

I suppose you use Gmail like strippers and other losers without their own computers. :lol:
