Dan Frakes at Macworld ran some basic tests on the new (but cameraless) iPod touch and got some interesting results. Most tests had the new iPod touch coming in around twice as fast as the previous model with browser tests going over 2X speed. Apple only claims a 50% improvement in speed on its website. Does the speed make up for the lack of a camera?
Note: the current 8GB version has the same processor as the previous model.
