Based on the specs page, Apple seems to indicate that the 4th gen iPod touch has an internal microphone. Is this true, or are they merely indicating its compatibility with the headphones-with-remote-and-mic?

It has a microphone. It is the little hole beside the back camera (no idea why they put it there).

  • That could be why it's there, but in my experience it captures audio from the front very well too. It even works well when the iPod is sitting on a table, so the microphone is pretty much touching.
