iPod touch with dual cameras coming soon?

In a brief post discussing Dell’s upcoming, Android-based Streak mini-tablet, John Gruber of Daring Fireball has suggested the fourth-generation iPod touch will be arriving soon. “…If you wait a few weeks to buy the [iPod] touch, you’ll get one with a Retina Display and dual cameras.” Photos of a supposed fourth-generation iPod touch LCD panel with a hole for a FaceTime-capable front-facing camera emerged last week, following an iLounge report citing a highly reliable source who said that a new iPod touch would be announced as early as this month or as late as September. As for the Streak, Gruber notes that at $550 off-contract, the five-inch device costs $50 more than an iPad with a 9.7-inch display.

  1. Since I parted ways with the greatest pocketable camera I ever owned when I sold my iPhone 4 to purchase an iPad, I’d be first in line if this year’s iPod touch offers the same camera system that debuted with iPhone 4. It would give me the best of iPhone 4 while retaining the beautiful 9.7 machine I’ve come to love. Throw in the Retina Display and the conversation’s over. I’ll never again miss my iphone 4.
