Updated iPod touch in December? Probably not…

November 10, 2009

When Apple announced the third generation iPod touch in September, many were disappointed that the device didn’t include a camera. A little of that sentiment is perhaps evident in a fresh rumor that the mothership plans (despite the fact that Phil Schiller has publicly announced that the company’s holiday line up is set) to release a revised model in December.

Without quoting anyone in particular, iPhone Alley reports that a “reliable source” has said that Apple plans to introduce an updated iPod touch in December.

“We’ve heard from a reliable source that Apple plans to introduce ‘a new iPod touch’ this December,” writes Michael Johnston for iPhone Alley. “Our source couldn’t go into details, but this may end up being the iPod touch with a camera that we’d expected back in September.”

That said, launching and pushing a new product through the channel in December would be almost impossible. There’s also the huge number of people that Apple would piss off with a ninth inning update.

Lastly, there’s also the fact that Phil Schiller has said Apple’s holiday line up is already set.

To sum up, although Apple is known to lie and has seemingly gone out of its way to irritate customers, rearranging its iPod line up at the height of the Christmas buying season would require a suicidally heroic effort. It’s just not gonna happen…

What’s your take?

    My prediction is that the iPod Touch will not get refreshed until September 2010, after the “Back to School” sale ends. Hopefully by then they will add video recording to the iTouch.

    I really hope that they come out with a Camera in December. I refuse to buy a touch until they add a camera. And if they end up waiting until next September I will probably end up buying something else.

    More interested in GPS. If they do put a camera on it, hopefully they make the lens on a swivel so you could flip it around for video conferencing like in google talk.
