3G-enabled iPod touch graphic found on Apple’s website


A graphic depicting a 3G-capable iPod touch has been found on Apple’s website. As noted by the iPhone Download Blog, the main image on apple.com/itunes shows what appears to be a fourth-generation iPod touch with a signal strength indicator and “3G” symbol in the upper left hand corner of the interface. While it is lacking the traditional carrier name, it is consistent with Apple’s recent iPhone promotional materials, which use “3G” in order to negate the need to make a different version of each image for each territory/carrier. As mentioned in the originating report, the appearance of the cellular data indicator on an iPod touch is most likely a mistake by Apple’s image department; we post it only as a topic of interest.

I’m going with “mistake” as well, much like the “Flash capable iPad” controversy that erupted shortly after the iPad came out because they had a commercial and web pages showing a known flash animation from the NYT.

However, that said, I would love for their to be some significance to this. The price gouging from and collusion between the cellular carriers in this country could use a product like this to give them a swift kick to the rear.
