3.2 Megapixel Cameras Bound for iPod touch, iPod nano, and... iPod classic?

The iPod touch, iPod nano, and now it sounds like the hard-drive based iPod classic are all set to receive cameras, presumably at Apple's September 9 music event. We've heard rumors of the iPod touch before, of course, and even the iPod nano, but the iPod classic as well?

That's what Digitimes (via MacRumors) is reporting:

OmniVision will be the sole supplier of 3.2-megapixel CIS products for new iPod nano, iPod classic and iPod Touch models which will be launched in September, the sources indicated.

So, the take away -- if these rumors pan out -- is that those of you who want apps (touch), portability (nano) and now, massive storage capacity (classic) might all have uber-convenient picture snapping in your future.
