iPod touch May Gain Camera in Future Hardware Revision ➝

As I had previously predicted a new Apple job listing implies that an upcoming hardware revision of the iPod touch will include a camera.

The job description says: “The iPhone Engineering Group is looking for a Camera Engineering Project Manager (EPM) to drive the design, development and integration of camera modules across iPhone and iPod.”

Yes, that does say “and iPod.” Those 3.2MP and 5MP image sensors will most likely be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch respectively, later this year.

The original job posting was placed on March 16 but the references to iPods has been removed. Although the removal of these references could cause many to conclude that the removal is as good as a confirmation, but it is also possible that Apple removed it because it wasn’t supposed to be their to begin with (and the job actually doesn’t have anything to do with iPods).
