I just noticed that they somehow got rid of the little black square on the back...just wondering...how did they manage to get the Wi-fi antenna to work through the metal?...also what is that little tiny hole next to the camera on the back of the iPod?...thanks for you're help ahead of time. :apple:

The hole next to the camera is a small mic. I'm not sure about the antenna, but it's possible the entire chrome back acts as an antenna. Again, I'm not sure about that though.

Oh, really?...I was wondering where the mic would go...but what a random place to put it haha...even though it looks like it totally belongs there, when u think mic...well u dont think its gonna be in the middle of the back lol

I think i read somewhere that there is a tiny amount of space between the chrome backing and the front black frame that allows the wi-fi to go through

there is no way they could have squeezed it near the power button right?
