Apple Preparing iPod Touch With Camera And Microphone

Rumors have swirled about Apple readying a new version of the iPod Touch with a camera and microphone, which, combined with a Skype account, would pretty much obviate the need for a home phone line once and for all.

A well-connected source tells Wired.com those rumors are on the money, and that Apple’s factories in China are already manufacturing iPod Touch models with integrated cameras and microphones. An Apple spokesman declined to comment when reached by phone.

If iPod Touches with cameras and microphones go on sale in two to three months, they will transform the entertainment-oriented iPod Touch line into a voice communications tool wherever WiFi is available.

In addition to these voice-over-IP capabilities, which should have telephone providers quaking in their boots, the microphone (and camera) would enable the iPod Touch to understand voice commands, capture video and images, and work with a wider variety of programs in the App Store.

    Anything to make a quick buck these days I’m happy with my 2nd generation ipod touch i honestly think having a camera and a microphone in a mp3 player is rediculous lol what’s next?? an ipod that cooks dinner for you??

    • I KNOW!I have a 3rd generation iPod touch and I LOVE IT. Its like as soon as u buy one, they come with another one as soon as the warranty on the receipt or your Insurance plan is over. It is getting reallly ridiculous.
