China is well known for their knowledge of possible upcoming releases in the latest tech gadgets, and this time they're showing off their knowledge with newly designed cases for upcoming versions of the iPod touch and iPod nano.
The difference? Both are [possibly] getting cameras.
We've been reading or hearing about this for a while now, since iLounge debuted the alleged new nano design in May, but this may be the real deal, if all of these companies manufacturing these cases are actually correct. Cult of Mac has an entire gallery of dozens of different cases for both models.
What's new though, is that it seems that the camera for the iPod touch will be centered and not offset like on the iPhone. Along with a space next to the lens, possibly a flash? The iPod nano will have the camera at the bottom left so that it will be top left when the device is held horizontally for snapping. And since the nano will be held horizontally for the camera, it seems the device will also be getting a widescreen display for better photo taking, but outer dimensions will stay the same.
The Chinese manufacturers of these cases seem to be pretty confident, though nothing is really confirmed. But even that hasn't stopped them from starting to send out some samples of the cases.
Cult of Mac received a quote from one company:
“My company had got full information and dimension,” wrote a Chinese distributor in an email to a U.S. reseller. “Enclosed some image and instruction for your reference. Most of the sample available now. If you need some sample check quality please freely let me know.”
What do you make of this? Possible, or completely false? Let us know!
