New iPod Touch Has Vibration Feature

When Apple announced the new iPod touch last week, we all saw the iPod touch creep closer to the capabilities of the iPhone.

Of course the iPod touch cannot make calls, has no GPS, has a less quality camera, and lacks other features that distinguishes it from the iPhone, but this week a new feature of the iPod touch has been revealed.

A mostly undocumented feature, the new iPod touch seems to have the capability to vibrate like the iPhone. It would seem that the vibration feature is geared toward an accessibility feature for users with hearing disabilities such as when alerts arrive or during incoming FaceTime calls.

Apple themselves are marketing FaceTime as the best way to make a phone call using sign language and by adding a vibrating feature to the iPod touch, this could help users will hearing disabilities when a call is incoming.

At this time, there is no confirmation if the vibration feature of the new iPod touch can be used in games and other applications like on the iPhone, but when the device gets into peoples hands, we will find out.
