iPod touch owner receives testing unit


A new 16GB iPod touch purchased by blogger Peter Allen appears to have shipped from the factory with a test program installed, instead of the standard iPod touch interface. Screenshots show several rows of icons, some with checkmarks, some with red x’s, and some with no added iconography. In particular, icons are present for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Battery, Accelerometer, Buttons, Speaker, Touch, Serial Number (whose icon is, playfully, a box of Cheerios cereal), Ambient Light, Headphones, and Temperature.
