Hey all,

Cheers

When I spoke to NextByte when I was buying my Mac they said no iPod Touch models were coming into the store until 28th Sept. This might have something to do with it.

The Australian Apple Store says that the new iPod only ships on September the 28th. If you've ordered it online you'll get it a week later.

Hey hey, great news, well for me anyway but could shed some light for other iPod touch orders. I recieved a shipment notification from Apple telling me my iTouch has left sydney on the way to perth for delivery to Port Hedland on friday the 28th. Which is about a week early, has anyone else got their notifications yet?

I heard the same thing when I asked JB Hi Fi. No I'm not getting one but still I wanted to have a little use of one to see what it's like and got that info.

To millsy05. I think you're lucky to get it (hopefully) on the 28th.

I have a friend who bought from the Apple online shop and received his 16G Touch on Tuesday 25/09 here in Perth.
Regardless of countless articles in the press about Apple shipping early Digilife here in the city are still sticking by their "Released in Australia on the 28/09" story so I'm not sure what the real truth is. It would be nice if someone who knows the real deal to let us in.

Your best bet would be to go to an Resseller like Digilife in Perth on the 28th. They must have stock so I would go in early to get one, mine has just left perth with TNT to Port Hedland, Ill be picking it up tomorrow. I cant wait

Ah, sorry I'm not sure. Not that it probably would help much but his was engraved, and I've read that these are coming earlier which seems quite strange.

hey all. Im writing this from my new iPod touch. The keyboard takes a bit to get used too but other then that this thing is off the charts. I'm extremely impressed with this device. So far the screen looks pretty good with no negative image effects. Ill keep ya posted on the iTouch experience.
