A number of very convincing images which reportedly show engineering prototypes of iPod Touch 5’s have been posted on various blogs. While at a quick glance there doesn’t seem to be much difference between this 5th generation iPod Touch and the current iPod Touch 4, a closer inspection reveals a few surprises!
The biggest surprise is that the images shown here seem to show an iPod Touch 5 prototype with a capacitive home button rather than a physical one. This could mean that the whole lower part of the Touch 5 could be an extra multi-touch area supporting the main touch screen.
