iPod touch prototype with camera surfaces in Vietnam

Vietnamese website Tinhte, the same site that posted pictures of a second leaked fourth-generation iPhone prototype last week, has posted new photos and a video (Translated Link) of an apparent prototype iPod touch unit with a functioning rear-facing camera. Limited to running some type of diagnostic software, the prototype appears to have the exact same physical dimensions and design as the second- and third-generation iPod touch, and is labeled “DVT-1” on the rear where the capacity marking normally appears. Mac Rumors notes that the serial number indicates the unit was manufactured in June 2009 and the “N18” codename found on a sticker on the back of the device indicated that the unit is indeed a third-generation iPod touch prototype, and not representative of an upcoming revision to the product. A pair of similar iPod touch prototypes recently surfaced on eBay; those followed the original appearance of a similar, but unmarked, prototype in August of 2009.
