Apple is expected to release an upgraded version of the iPod touch in a few months, and details on this model are already starting to leak out.
At this point, much of the buzz is around this upcoming handheld computer's camera. It will supposedly be the first version of the iPod touch with a camera. This will have the same resolution as the one in the new iPhone 4: 5 megapixels.
In addition, this device is reportedly going to have a front-facing camera and support for Apple's FaceTime app. This will allow users to make video calls to other iPod touch and iPhone 4 users over a Wi-Fi connection.
The information about this upcoming model's cameras is supposedly coming from parts suppliers in Asia. However, these sources have so far been quiet about the other features.
Many are expecting the next iPod touch to offer the same 3.5-inch, 640 x 960 touchscreen as the iPhone 4, but that's pure speculation.
It will certainly run Apple iOS 4.0, but it's not known yet if it will use the a 1 GHz Apple A4 processor that's in Apple's latest smartphone.
Other details, like storage capacity, are also a mystery.
