As strange as it sounds, the answer is apparently, “yes”. Digitimes reports that OmniVision has become the only supplier of CMOS image sensors for the next generation of iPods. Their sources stated that the company would be providing 3.2 megapixel cameras for the new iPod Nano, Classic, and Touch models, all of which they expected to launch in September.

This is very strange news. While we've been fairly certain for the last few months that cameras were coming for the new iPod Nano and Touch, we didn't expect to hear of any changes to the old hard-drive sporting Classic. Flash memory is pretty much the industry standard for media players these days. It's likely that, if the Classic ends up getting a camera, that will be the last change made to that line of iPods.

Apple hasn't confirmed any of this yet, so it is all still very much up in the air. We'll know for certain on September 10 just what is happening to the iPod. Until then, juicy rumors like this will have to keep us sated.
