Default Cameras in the Next iPods?

I'll believe it when I see them. I guess that I think it unlikely that Apple can find technology that is not too costly and still tiny enough to keep from making the iPod or Nano any bigger than they already are. Making a bigger Nano, or reducing margins to razor thin ones, doesn't seem to be the Apple way.

But, what do I know? I'm just getting to the point that I'd rather not guess what's coming and instead react to what's delivered, rather than expect more and end up disappointed with the reality when it comes.

Like doogald, when it comes to Apple rumors, I believe it when I see it. I've heard of all kinds of rumors surrounding upcoming WWDC announcements. We'll see when Apple actually makes the announcements.

I highly doubt that this will happen because if someone wants a camera and listen to music he can get an Iphone.
