iPod touch and iPod nano to Get Cameras?

We'd heard rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera already -- makes sense and would tie it even more closely to the iPhone OS. HardMac (via MacRumors) is now saying the iPod nano will as well.

Sounds plausible as it provides an easy way for Apple to both strengthen ties within their ecosystem and incrementally update both platforms in time for the holidays.

  • It will be interesting. But I think that, iPod Classic might be possible as it has a bigger storage space.
  • LOL no way the classic is getting a camera.
  • I was frankly surprised when I first learned that the Touch did not have a camera. A camera costs pennies to include these days and it would have appealed to the same market that the Touch sells into.
    In fact, a Front facing cam makes a lot more sense because it could be used as a web cam for video calling. Teens and college crowd would snap that up in huge numbers.
  • I'm pretty sure the 1st gen shuffle is coming back with a camera. That's what my friend told me. I believe him.
  • well kills, you're wrong
  • Oh good....a camera on an iPod nano....even more hidden gym locker room photos popping up on the Internet ;)
  • haha I like Drew's idea best! ;-)
    Might be okay for the Touch, not really necessary for the Nano.
