Macbidouille is reporting that iPod Nanos and Touch will receive cameras during their traditional fall updates.  It isn’t hard to see how the iPod Touch will receive the iPhone’s camera, iPod Touches have been slowly catching up to the iPhone’s functionality, getting Bluetooth, speakers, and mic-in. It should also get the new iPhone OS’s video producing capabilities, which will be a real differentiator against new products like the ZuneHD.  The iPod touch camera will likely be the same 3.2 megapixel model expected in the new iPhone.

They also note that the Nano will get a camera in September.  This would be a more interesting proposition because the Nano OS doesn’t have as many capabilities as that of the Touch.  It is also so small that the quality of the experience would be questionable.

Finally, they mention that the June 2009 iPhones will retain the same form factor as the current iPhones.

New iPods were released on September 9th 2008 and Apple is widely belived to now be on a yearly release schedule with its major products.  (the image is a Chinese knockoff btw)
