August 27, 2010

Less than a week before an Apple event is set to take place, cases for devices which have been rumored to be featured at the event appear online. The picture comes courtesy of Chinese case retailer X-Doria. The image seems to show what appears to be a 4th generation iPod Touch, which is rumored to have the front facing camera built-in for FaceTime.
The second case is said to be for the iPod Nano 6th generation, but it could easily be a case for a new iPod shuffle. It also appears to match a 1.7 inch Apple touchscreen that turned up in Taiwan.

The September event usually revolves around music and the iPod family so we know there’s updates coming just not sure on which devices.
