The Covino & Rich Show has posted some photos that they claim are of next generation iPod Touch.
The difference between the current iPod Touch and these rumored photos is that of a camera and microphone which matches with the previous rumors about iPod Touch 3rd Gen. Authenticity of these iPod Touch 3rd Gen photos is not yet confirmed.
Other information found on the source is:
According to that man (he works with Apple)…
-to show it’s real. If you look at the board, it states Apple 2009 very clear. The 2nd gen AKA iPod touch out now, has 2008 on it. They haven’t revised the 2008 touch. I will compare them in pic in a sec.
-BTW, these phones NEVER leave Apple and this one left but it was a durability test phone, so that’s why the screen is all gridded off and cracked.
-The side by side picture is the inside of the current gen vs the 3rd gen (one coming out in September).
-I acquired this from a guy that I buy parts phones and iPods from. I believe he’s a recycler in ***********, so what most likely happened is that Apple threw this away and he some how got it and sold it for parts.”
UPDATE: For any blogs asking…this is not a stunt. at least not on our end. as far as we know, these photos are 100% legit.
Engadget has also published a video of what could be the third generation iPod Touch which matches the leaked photos:
MacRumors comments on a photo:
The rumored next-generation version does, however, appear to contain a red motherboard in contrast to the typical black circuit boards. The use of red or other alternate colored circuit boards is relatively common in prototype devices.
We might not have to wait too long to know the authenticity of these rumors as probably Apple is planning for its next keynote on September 8 so we can expect something new (say iPod Touch 3rd Gen) on that day.
