Many changes are made to Apple products between the development and production phases, and unfortunately, the 3rd-generation iPod Touch lost camera functionality before its official launch. This DVT-1/2 unit proves it, which made a brief appearance on eBay, until the device(s) was promptly removed. Click here for first picture in gallery.
