Rear camera most desirable addition to iPod Touch

T3 readers pick rear mounted camera as must for new iPod Touch

A good rear mounted camera has topped the list of desirable additions to the heavily rumoured upcoming update to the Apple iPod touch, a poll of T3 readers has revealed.

Taking 27 per cent of the poll “What do you want from the next iPod Touch?” a good quality rear facing camera narrowly piped Apple’s Retina Display to top spot with the iPhone 4’s stunning screen receiving 23 per cent of the more than 400 votes.

The remaining 50 percent was shared between iPhone 4-style looks (18 per cent), beefed-up 128GB storage (17 per cent) and an SD card slot (6 per cent). With just 9 per cent of the votes, the inclusion of a front-facing camera with FaceTime capabilities was considered by you, the T3 readers, of considerably less importance than a high-end rear mounted snapper.

If the specs of the new iPod Touch clumsily leaked at a John Lewis Christmas products event recently are to be believed then those hoping for a rear camera could see their wishes come true. Transforming the iPod Touch into a near mirror image of the iPhone 4, John Lewis declared the next gen iPod would host a 5-megapixel camera with Flash, HD video, an accelerometer, gryroscope and a front-facing camera to deliver FaceTime video calling.

An exact launch date for the iPod Touch update is not yet know but a September unveiling to tie in with Apple’s usual annual product cycle is widely expected.

For all the latest on the updates to the iPod Touch stay tuned to T3 and the T3 Twitter and Facebook pages.
