iFixit has revealed the results of its tear-down of the new iPod touch, and for those in a speculative state of mind, they make interesting reading.

Perhaps supporting the rumour that the iPod touch's camera was dropped at the last minute due to technical faults, it seems Apple has "left room" for a camera in the top of the device.

Meanwhile, the player contains a Broadcom BCM4329 chip, which supports 802.11n (which the iPhone doesn't yet have) as well as FM transmission, leaving options open for future updates to offer new functions.

The full tear-down, complete with a plethora of pics, is live online now over at iFixit, while a video is promised soon.
