Leaked iPod Touch parts suggest front-facing camera and FaceTime set for inclusion in new model

iPod 4g camera bezel leak.jpgRumours surrounding the possible inclusion of a front facing camera and the FaceTime app in the latest iPod Touch revamp are hitting fever-pitch, as leaked pics of what is believed to be the new iPod Touch bezel and LCD have been revealed.

The bezel, if it turns out to be an actual Apple-approved component, clearly has a space cut out for a camera lens, and is marked “Apple © 2010” with the date “April 29, 2010” also printed.

So, if the rumours prove true, how would FaceTime work without a mobile network connection? As it stands, FaceTime on the iPhone 4 connects initially over 3G so the caller’s ID and number can be displayed before switching over to Wi-Fi for the data intensive video streaming. An iPod Touch using the same app would likely have to link into an iTunes account to identify each caller.

But do we even want FaceTime on our iPods? Surely those shelling out for a new MP3 player, in this age of multi-functional mobiles and iPhones are after just that: a dedicated music player, perhaps with the odd app, and not much else?

Fancy getting FaceTime on your iPod? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
