I would imagine that any new products wouldn't be available until after 7 September. They usually wait to release new iPods until after the summer promo is over...

Not necessary. They could release them right away and the new ipods just wont be counted in the back to school promotion.

how hard is this for people to understand?

I get it, but I imagine that this approach would be somewhat difficult to explain in stores. I hate it when promos have 'some restrictions apply' tagged onto them. IMO, it would be better to just wait until after the promo is over.

of course

the 8Gb is the second gen. They do the same for the iphone. Chances are this year the 16GB 3rd gen will make its may as a low end model.

Same here, but they want to make sales no? Besides most have already taken advantage of the prom those who havn't just have to deal with the fact its the second gen touch.

It's entirely thinkable that the announcement part is a week early, but the actual release is when we all thought, sometime after the 7th.

I just bought a refurb 3g, so here's the moment of truth as to whether it's worth a return or not.

i think back in 2007 the ipod event was on the 12th. a "week" late. :rolleyes:

Who cares when its announced. If its a week early who cares.

Is it the case then that the newest iPod touch won't have a video camera like the iPod nano? For me, that would be much more useful than a forward-facing camera for Facetime.

so glad it's so soon. Just next week, won't have to suffer through too much classes without an ipod lol. Okay so question, how soon after an ipod event are ipods usually available? I want to buy mine through Best Buy CC and interest lol.

Apple is spiteful? Not at all. However, I wouldn't want them to remove the A4, camera, and 512 RAM just to disprove Gruber.

Well, the likelihood of a fresh rumor at this point is quite low. Do we sit here patiently for a week? Or has Gizmodo found an ipod touch 4 in a bar somewhere?

What are you talking about? I would love all of that. I have a decaying 1G touch. Just the A4 and RAM would be worth the upgrade. Also, I said

Haha, I would be disappointed if these features did not appear. I am always amazed at the secrecy of these product releases. Surely, they've been in production for months yet nothing substantial has been leaked.

I can only assume that they have kept a closer watch on things since the iphone 4.

Isn't the back to school promo over on September 7? I can't imagine Apple will start selling the 4G until after that date. I think the sales of the 4G will be September 8, exactly one week after the special event.

No they could sell it immediately, it doesnt matter if the event is still going.. some people dont care if its the newest one.. they just want a free itouch :p
