Technical problems may delay camera-equipped iPods AppleInsider cites a reliable source that has suggested that either camera-equipped iPods won't be shown at the media event on September 9 hosted by Apple, or that they will be unveiled but won't be available to buy for some time. According to the source, Apple has experience technical problems with the cameras hardware.
Pictures of iPod Touch and Nano cases surfaced online in recent months with holes for a camera lens present in them. No pictures showed up of cases designed for the iPod Classic, which is equipped with a traditional HDD instead of flash memory storage.

Reports have suggested that some iPods in the line-up were to be fitted with the same 3.2 megapixel CMOS image sensors that are used with the iPhone 3GS model. The report of technical problems from AppleInsider also mirrored another report published on Monday by Hardmac, the English-language version of French Apple news site Macbidouille.
