It's rumor Monday! Or, it's just Monday and the news was a tad slow over the weekend, which is why we've got spy shots of the purported next-generation iPod touch floating on our site. The photos come from M.I.C. gadget, and they show iPod touch parts with front-facing cameras.
The site says the following about the spy shots:
We found these photos on a Chinese online store, showing the front LCD and bezel of the upcoming 4th generation iPod Touch. The part clearly shows a front-sided hole that would leave room for a front-facing FaceTime camera, and the part is labeled “Apple (c) 2010″.
An iPhone parts supplier is responsible for the store, and this supplier claimed that they got these parts through a “special channel”, maybe this is the iPod touch 4th generation prototype which is leaked from the factory. This part is on sale for $650 Chinese yuan ($95 USD). Take your time to see the pics below.
This September's Apple conference will hopefully have something to do with a refresh of the iPod touch (and maybe even an "iTV"). A front-facing camera on these portable music players would also mean more people to FaceTime with--maybe by then, it'll finally catch on.
