Next gen Apple iPod Touch to host glasses-free 3D display

Upcoming iPod Touch to add 3D gaming credentials

With the expected arrival of the iPad 2 just weeks away and the iPhone 5 already on the horizon, the next generation iPod Touch has snuck under the radar with latest reports suggesting the upcoming Apple PMP will feature a glasses-free 3D display.

Japanese blog Macotakara claims to have been informed by one of Apple’s display manufacturers that the fifth generation iPod Touch, expected to follow Apple’s strict product cycles and launch in September, will come equipped with a Nintendo 3DS inspired sans-specs 3D screen.

Whilst this rumour must be taken with a pinch of salt, a hefty one at that if Apple is to tarnish its ultra slim, perfectly styled finish bestowed upon the iPod Touch, the inclusion of a 3D display on the pocket-friendly device would open it up to a feast of new app-based possibilities.

Unveiled alongside a heavily updated iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle the latest rendition of the Touch saw the device gain front and rear facing cameras along with Apple’s FaceTime video calling technology and a new, slimmer form.

Apple was shook to its core earlier today when it was announced that its charismatic and formidable leader and CEO Steve Jobs is to take another medical-induced leave of absence. The cancer survivor who in 2009 underwent a liver transplant wrote to Apple employees revealing he would be absent from the company until further notice.
