In some of Apple’s product shots of the new iPod touch, there’s a Bluetooh icon in the upper-right corner of the display, Thomas Ricker reports for Engadget.
“Right, Bluetooth, as in the not announced Bluetooth radio in Apple’s new iPod touch,” Ricker reports.
Ricker reports, “We heard from a pretty decent source that the touch internals are very similar to the iPhone internals, and that there is a Bluetooth chip in there — it’s just not activated. We’ll all find out as soon as someone dismantles one of these little buggers, but whether or not that’s actually the case, we took a peek at the touch’s FCC filing, which went live yesterday. It only contains tests for WiFi, meaning if there IS Bluetooth in there, at very least they’re going to have to get it cleared again by the FCC before flipping the switch.”
