Bad news, iPod fans! If a recent article on AppleInsider is correct, new iPods could be delayed due to bad cameras – a feature long rumored to be in the next generation of Apple’s music players.
“A person with a strong track record in predicting Apple’s upcoming product launches recently told AppleInsider that the iPod maker has experienced technical problems (bad parts) with the cameras modules. The person said that it was uncertain whether the new hardware, which has been widely expected to debut at Wednesday’s “Only rock and roll” media-centric event, would make the cut for early September retail distribution.”
I doubt that this news will derail the Apple event scheduled to take place tomorrow. It can, however, put a damper on things. If Apple does unveil a new iPods with digital cameras, don’t expect wide availability of the new devices for a few weeks.
We’ll have more from the Apple front after tomorrow’s keynote.
