Does the iPod Touch have Bluetooth? - UPDATED

Check the upper right corner. Squint a bit. There. See it? Next to the battery meter. Yup. Lest mine eyes deceive me, that's a Bluetooth icon.

Unannounced Bluetooth feature? No Mail or Notes programs? Delayed, unspecified launch date ("a few weeks")? Something is fishy. And does anybody else think the iPod Touch's home screen looks a little sparse and underwhelming when compared to the iPhone's?Anyone care to speculate as to why there would be a Bluetooth icon on the Touch when Stevie J and Party didn't mention a thing about it yesterday?

UPDATED: Nope. Apple confirmed no Bluetooth. Oh well. I suppose we can still hope for a Mail app.
