iPod touch gets Vibration for FaceTime and Games

The latest generation iPod touch has a vibration motor installed. This is revealed thanks to the FCC teardown that we mentioned last week.

It is expected that vibration will be used for incoming FaceTime calls. The motor is also confirmed by Apple [AAPL] on the accessibility page (quoted below).

If somebody wants to start a video call with you, you?ll receive an invitation — along with a vibrating alert — on your iPod touch asking you to join. Simply tap Accept, and the video call begins.

This is the first time that an iPod touch has had vibration built in. The iPhone of course, has had this ability since the beginning just like most other mobile phones.

It is also expected that the motor be used for other features such as feedback in games.
