New iPod touch: 3.2MP camera primed

Talk of five megapixels coming to iPod touch crushed.

The new iPod touch has fast become the main grist to the Apple rumour mill in recent days. And now one source says the mooted five megapixel camera is not coming to Cupertino’s top end PMP.

Insiders have told 9to5mac that the camera on the iPod touch will in fact only be 3.2 megapixels, with ‘similar characteristics’ to that found on the iPhone 3GS. That also suggests there won’t be an LED flash either.

In a further twist, the same site also has word that the new iPod touch won’t follow the design lead of the iPhone 4, perhaps suggesting a leaked camera-packing iPod touch, initially slated for release last year, will in fact land officially in 2010.

With Apple’s annual iPod event usually kicking off in September, expect a good two more months of hot gossip before this gets the Steve Jobs seal of approval. Keep up with all the iPod touch developments on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
