    The BT icon is only on one image.
    The text is because the reflection is from a different shot of the iPod.
    It's the track, album and artist name or something.

    So I say error.

    iPod Touch has Bluetooth!?!

    Look at this image direct off Apple's site:

    See the Bluetooth symbol in the upper right? (Just left of the battery indicator)


    Here is the direct link to it on Apple's site. Not sure how long it will stay up there...

    I hope they do put BT in it, that makes file transfer easier, more potential to be a good PDA..

    Wouldn't bluetooth make transfers painfully slow? like 3 minutes per song? I don't think it will be on the ipod, since you still need to plug it in for charging.

    yeah, for a song, if u just transfer a photo, or a small app that is 200KB in size, BT is much easier.

    It would be really nice to have that option, i'd use it, since i transfer like 10 songs every sync, but still, it would be confusing for people to say: "with bluetooth you can transfer stuff, without wires!!" and then on the fine print "it'll take 30 minutes for a video", and videos will be a big part of the touch.

    Can they please make wi-fi transfers an option, now that would be nice!

    Has Apple already released a horizontal stand for the iTouch/iPhone like the clear one in the pictures above?

    Yep. All the iPod touches come with the stand. It's listed in "What's in the box" on the apple website... as far as I know the iphone doesn't come with one.

    The stand comes with the iPod touch. Far from a good dock but it's OK.

    That's cool for the touch....think it'll be available separately for use with the iPhone?

    You got a person that does not know what they are talking about... Means nothing.

    I just chatted with Apple online and the person I spoke with said "Unfortunetly there is no Bluetooth support, however there is WiFi."

    If it has bluetooth, they would have mentioned something during the keynote...it would be another great selling point. I don't see Apple adding new functionality and not mentioning it.

    However, I'd love to see the Touch with bluetooth, just for wireless headphones alone...would do wonders when I'm training in the gym/going for runs.
