iPod touch 3G teardown: space for camera, WiFi ‘n’ & FM chip found

Consider us surprised that, while we expected the most interest out of the iPod nano 5G teardown, in actual fact it's Apple's updated third-gen iPod touch the guts of which that are prompting the most intrigue.  iFixit have been doing their usual job of stripping the new PMP down to its constituent parts, and in the process they've discovered not only a space where a nano-style video camera would fit perfectly, but signs of faster networking too.
