Is next iPod worth waiting to recycle mobile for?

Images of the next-generation iPod touch have been circulated in the media and many consumers may now delay recycling their mobile phone until it is released.

Asavin Wattanajantra, reviewing the pictures for CNET UK, says the gadget appears to include a FaceTime camera, which could allow users to make video calls and take snaps simultaneously.

FaceTime is currently limited only to the iPhone 4, meaning its inclusion on the new iPod touch may make it a particularly popular device.

"If the iPod touch fourth-generation carries a camera, the implication might be that FaceTime could become feasible for owners of a wide range of devices, such as BlackBerry, Nokia or Android," explains the expert.

It is thought the technology is so powerful it could eventually negate the need for phone numbers, with owners contacting each other through email addresses.

Apple has recently rolled out the iPhone 4 in nine more countries, adding to the five original spots it was launched in.
