A Dutch blog called AppleSpot.nl asserts the next generation iPod Touch will include a SIM card slot that will allow for 3G connectivity.
It will work just like the iPad; you get a 3G enabled SIM card from your provider and put that in you iPod Touch. Apple’s choice of bringing 3G to the iPod Touch isn’t all that weird, if it’s true of course. Question remains how the providers will react to this, since the use of for example Skype will skyrocket.
This feature would be welcomed by users who don’t have accessible Wi-Fi hotspots at their favorite hangouts and love their iPod Touch.
Owners could use VoIP apps to make ringtones and have an cheap iPhone.
What the report doesn’t mention is why Apple would produced a product that could cannibalize their own revenue and possibly jeopardize long-term working relationships with mobile carriers.
