Nice price drop on the touch..BUT STILL NO CAMERA!

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I thought the BIG surprise today was going to be an ipod touch with a camera. Even after Jobs introduced the 3 touches without a camera, I thought he was going to come back after Jack Johnson sang and say "Oh...ONE more thing..." and then introduce the ipod touch version with a camera.



Wishful thinking.



If Jobs had done that, this event would have been note worthy.



As it is....pretty ho hum.



Minor updates. Nice price drop. But thats about it.

    I was hoping for a camera too... I guess we will have to wait until the 3rd generation of the iPod Touch...

    YES! Apparently the new ipod Touch CAN record AUDIO since it uses the same 4 pin audio in plug the iphone uses!



    This is AWESOME because with the proper headphones now, you could theoretically use the iPod TOUCH with VOiP!!!!



    How cool is that? :-)



    I was bummed about the no camera....but this sort of makes up for it. We can't have everything i guess.

    Excellent. It's too bad the Touch didn't get Bluetooth (which would allow the use of a real keyboard) but audio recording is a good start. Maybe I'll pick one up!

    Just thought of something.



    If the iPod Touch runs a scaled down version of Mac OS X, is it possible to make a version of MacSpeech's Dictate to run on the Touch?



    That would be amazingly cool.
