New iPod touch revealed by case maker?

Potential proof this morning that the next-generation iPod touch will — at last — host a camera, with French Apple website, HardMac, bringing us pictures of a new case design for the product.

As you can see in the image above, the camera is situated in the back top right of the device (when held from the front). There has been some speculation this will be a -megapixel camera, but most now agree a 3-megapixel camera will appear.

As you can see there’s also a spot for a small flash unit, suggesting the next-gen iPod touch won’t just take pictures, but may — as the iPhone 4 already doees — also take video.

This would imply the iPod touch will be able to run Apple’s iMovie app, pitting the product firmly against the Flip and further reinforcing notions the next-gen iPod touch will also run on an A4 processor.

“This source is very reliable since it is already thanks to it that we were able to predict the camera on the iPod Mini last year,” HardMac notes.
