Report: iPods to Get Same Camera as iPhone

Reports today are suggesting that the next generation iPod Touch will feature a camera. Not only that, but rumor has it the next-gen iPod Nano will have one too. TechCrunch today cites sources in Asia who claim Apple has placed an order for a massive number of camera modules; the same type used in the iPhone. Theses same sources went on to say that the quantity ordered suggests they will be used for iPods.

Sources say there’s enough cameras on order for Apple to include a camera in pretty much everything but the shuffle, which is a little puzzling. Sure, it makes sense to stick a camera on the iPod touch because the device is essentially an iPhone without the phone, but the iPod nano is an PMP. Period.

We’re genuinely interested in hearing your feedback on this one. Is there any need for a camera on a music player? Does actually anyone want an PMP with a camera?  Let us know in the comments below!
