Hey,

Does anyone know if the new iPod touch due to be released Sep 1 be eligible for the "Back to School" promotion?

Nope. The reason Apple does the Back to School promotion is to clear out iPod touch stock to make room for the newer model.

Probably not.

The promo was made to clear out the current-gen iPod touch, in order to make room for the next-gen ones.

If they do end up announcing new iPods on Sept 1, it probably won't go on sale until after Sept 7

The past two iPod touch generations have been released on the same day they were announced. Why would they change that?

In the past, I think they started selling new iPod models after the promotion ended.

I'm getting different replies from the apple retail store folks. one says the new ipod touch is eligible but another says no.

arghh...dunno if i should wait before buying my computer

Because the back to school promo is still going on.

ah thank you for this. I stand corrected and agree: Apple will probably sell the day after its event.

worst case, you get a previous gen ipod touch which YOU sell and get some quick cash. use that money to get a new gen iPT. done and done.
