3rd Gen iPod Touch Stripped Down, WiFi N And FM Transmitter Discovered
Don’t kill me for saying this, but iFixit is on a ‘tear’ lately when it comes to stripping down Apple products. Just yesterday we saw the inards of the brand new iPod Nano (with camera) and now they’ve stripped apart a 3rd gen iPod Touch.
And guess what they found? Inside the device is a Broadcom BCM4329 chip, which supposedly supports 802.11n (the latest iteration of WiFi) and the ability to transmit the iPod’s audio to a nearby FM radio. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard murmurs of a handheld Apple product including an FM transmitter so pardon me when I say it’s not a huge surprise.
Oh, and all those rumors regarding an iPod Touch cases with a camera. It looks like they weren’t too far off the mark, because according to iFixit there is enough room to include one.
