iFixit has posted its teardown of the fourth-generation iPod touch, discovering several interesting details about the new media player. Most notably, the touch 4G’s A4 processor carries the same marking on it as the iPad’s A4, indicating that the new device offers only 256MB of RAM, which is somewhat surprising given that the iPhone 4 has 512MB of RAM. The iPod touch 4G also features a a slightly thinner front-facing camera module, and it appears that the LCD and front glass panel are fused together like the iPhone 4’s, meaning users will need to replace both components should one become damaged and/or fail to function properly.
