International trade company Alibaba has posted two purported components for the next generation iPod Touch. These products include an LCD assembly unit with digitizer and a stand-alone digitizer (both of which include a hole in the top center of the assembly that could be used for a front-facing camera). These components potentially support the notion of a front-facing camera put forth earlier by UK retailer John Lewis, however, as MacRumors points out, the implied back-to-back positioning of a front and rear-facing camera on a device as slim as the iPod Touch is difficult, if not impossible. If Apple was going to include a center front-facing camera as shown above, the rear camera must be positioned to the side or removed completely. In light of this camera positioning information, what do you think? Real or just some fake knock-offs?
