Apple planning FaceTime for iPod Touch

The iPhone 4's video calling service FaceTime may be integrated into the next generation of the iPod Touch range, allowing users to hold face to face conversations over a Wi-Fi connection.

Apple is rumoured to be prepping the new iPod Touch for a September launch after images that reportedly show a case for the device were published online, leading to speculation over the presence of FaceTime on the portable media player.

The case apparently has an aperture on the front that would allow a forward-facing VGA camera to peep through, hinting at the intended integration of FaceTime into Apple's popular device.

Since FaceTime is only possible via Wi-Fi on the iPhone 4 it would seem sensible for Apple to share this feature with the iPod Touch range, since Wi-Fi connectivity has always been a strong point for the device.

Giving users the chance to communicate using the fourth generation iPod would definitely allow Apple to offer it with a unique selling point, according to MacRumours.

The previous generation of the iPod Touch was updated to support 64GB of onboard storage space and this is expected to expand further with the latest edition.

This would make sense since the high quality display will beg to be paired with high resolution video clips and this will inevitably lead to a need for greater storage capacity.
