iPhone Download Blog’s iPod touch with 3G rendering

We know you love beautiful renditions of Apple’s unreleased products as much as we do. Last week, the blogosphere buzzed briefly about a fifth-generation iPod touch which was said to include 3G cellular data connectivity and a micro-SIM tray, allowing users to swap in and out SIM cards to change their data provider and take advantage on 3G cellular data to keep using VoIP programs, social apps and other data-hungry software while outside the coverage of nearby wireless hotspots. As crazy as it sounded, the rumor tied nicely with an alleged inexpensive, mass-market iPhone, basically an iPod touch with phone parts thrown in. With that in mind, our friends over at the iPhone Download Blog have created this cool concept render of a 3G iPod touch.

We took this concept to Photoshop, and we came up with the iPod Touch 3G. It looks exactly like the current iPod Touch, but has a black strip on the back. It also says “3G” in the menu bar. Along with that, it also features an integrated SIM card, as the next iPhone is rumored to have.

Kudos for the great work (but you can always beg to differ in the comments). While we’re at it, have you seen these incredibly believable iPhone 5 mockups?
