iPod cases suggest camera on Touch, Nano

Cult of Mac blog gets photos from manufacturers for the upcoming iPod Touch and iPod Nano, which show a slot for a camera on each.

It's been widely rumored that the next version of the iPod Touch and iPod Nano to be released by Apple will have cameras inside. Now, a series of photos from Chinese iPod case manufacturers suggest that it's more than just speculation.

The Cult of Mac blog has obtained a stack of photos of what it describes as "the worst-kept secret in China." The images show multiple case designs for an iPod Touch and an iPod Nano with notches out of the material, which suggest a camera, much like the way cases for the iPhone accommodate that device's shooter.

For the iPod Touch cases, the camera slot is centered--unlike the iPhone's--while the Nano case camera slot is situated toward the bottom on the left. The Nano also appears to have a wide-screen display.

Most Apple observers anticipate the company will hold its annual iPod and music event in September, where in addition to a camera, the iPod Touch is expected to be updated with a microphone and digital compass as well.
