3rd generation iPod touch has 802.11n Wi-Fi chip
The folks at iFixit decided to get their hands dirty by performing an autopsy of sorts on a new 3rd generation iPod touch, and their findings have been surprising to say the least. First of all, they discovered that this latest device has a Broadcom BCM4329FKUBG wireless chip in its chassis, making it very possible for the iPod touch to function on 802.11n wireless networks without missing a beat. In addition, it also comes with a a Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and a FM receiver and transmitter, alongside some space for a camera in the same vein as an iPod nano. Talk about leaving room for the future, eh? While you can’t take advantage of 802.11n support at the moment, hopefully future Apple updates will fix that.
