Just wondering if anyone has seen the new ipods in the stores yet? I can call later after work I guess but this is easier.

just curious, but how is THIS easier?

pick up the phone, call, get an instant answer from someone who would actually know.

Does that include the iPod Touch or just Nano, Classic or Shuffle? :)

I'm not stupid like you assume... yes I read all the fuss yesterday and they say its not shipping from the Apple online store till the end of the month, but what about the retail stores..

I'm in Austin Texas and here's what I've found so far in my search for what store will get the Ipod Nano and when:

-Called Best Buy, they said the 12th
-Called the Apple outlet store, they said they heard some time this weekend
-Called Fry's Electronics, they said either Friday or Monday
-Called Circuit City, they said they won't get the new Ipod Nanos till the end of the month.
-Called CompUSA, they said "next week"
-Called Walmart, they said probably somewhere between a week and a month.
-Called the main Apple number and the lady said she heard they go out this weekend.

I GIVE UP! I'll just check Fry's and the Apple store tomorrow and Sat, then again Monday.

It's amazing to me major stores aren't promoting pre orders or at least listing them as coming soon to drum up interest and get customers into their stores. I can't find any online info on a date a store expects to get them, heck I don't even see a mention of them on store websites other than Amazon.

Didn't Steve say @ the conference they were shipping to stores yesterday? I would imagine some stores got overnight shipping.

what I found on belgium store:

iPod Shuffle: ready to start shipping in 24 hours
iPod Nano: ready to start shipping in 3 days
iPod Classic: ready to start shipping in 3 days
iPod Touch: ready to start shipping September 28th

EDIT: I think the shuffle is already shipping and that the 24 hours just mean yes they are ready, because the apple tv is also ready to ship in 24 hours but it hasn't been just released.

Sometimes Apple stores seem like the last to know...it may well be easier to check here...

All the stores around me (five Apple stores in the DC area) have the 80 GB Classic in stock (I held one in my hand, so I know it to be true). Nobody seems to have the 160GB, which is what I need.

I haven't been asking after any of the other models.

I called the Sagemore Store last night and the guy seemed all confused and just said to call back tomorrow (now today) ... but I'm probably just gonna wait to call until Saturday (since I can't even get over there tonight or tomorrow anyway).

That would make sense. :D

I thought that the earliest they guaranteed was that some of them would be in the stores on Saturday.

Just in case anybody here lives in AZ and is looking for a nano...the Chandler, AZ Apple store has them in stock. I just picked up a black [Edit: "graphite" is probably a better description] 8GB Nano Phatty.

Im in boston and went to the cambridge apple store. I spoke with an apple guy there...and he told me they already had the nano's and new ipod videos in the store and ready to sell. He opened up a drawer behind the counter filled with nanos and picked up the box of the new ipod video. He then told me that the ipod touch would be in stock and available to buy sometime this weekend...probably saturday.

So yeah, at least at this store, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BUY AN IPOD TOUCH THIS WEEKEND.

An update - as of 11AM this morning, the Palo Alto store did not have the iPod classic. However, just called, and now they have the 80gb model.

I was the first to get a 80 GB black iPod classic today at my local Apple store (Mission Viejo, CA) and some guy got a new Nano just b4 I did. So they are in at least some stores already.:)

Just got off the phone with an Apple employee at the Las Vegas Fashion Show Mall Apple Store and he said they had the nano in stock but not on display.

I just picked up an 80 gig silver classic at the Somerset Apple Store.

It is VERY nice, the Touch is cool but I already have an iPhone only 8 gig of space.

Has anyone purchased or at least heard of the classic or nano being in stock at resellers? I'm thinking Fry's, Best Buy, and Target specifically?
It's probably not priority, but I'm sure Apple has the potential to get them in everyone's paws pretty quick.

Thats possible. I called that same store today and spoke with a different person, and they said thats a big lie. They would get them toward the end of the month. Thats just odd, because the apple guy said I would be able to call saturday around 1pm when "they get the shipments in" and put the touch on hold till monday when i return to boston. Maybe he got it mistaken with the new video ipod, but I clearly said "Ipod touch" multiple times and I put an emphasis on "Ipod TOUCH", so we'll just see i guess. Im calling tomorrow at 1 either way, maybe ill get lucky.

i live in Melbourne, Australia and the guy at myer (huge department store) said ipod touches would be in 17th september. i asked multiple times if he was sure it was the ipod touch and he said yes; but they dont take pre orders for some reason. anyway i hope he's right!
im gonna call next week to confirm with some other store person.

Madison, WI store has the new Nanos (scored one) and the 80GB Classic. No joy on the 160GB models yet.

Big electronic stores don't want to receive the new iPods or promote them - they want to get rid of the old first. At Future shop we were told to push the white old iMacs real hard when the new ones were released.

Myself and a few others asked about this earlier, but no one has answered.

I picked up my 80GB classic in silver this morning at Best Buy. Target and Fry's did not have it yet, but Best Buy had the 80GB and 4GB nanos.

Good luck to all those with no Apple Stores in sight!

Anyone know anything about the new Apple store in Louisville, KY? I want a touch, just need to know when they might have 'em.

Here's the situation in the Sacramento, CA area:

Apple Store (Arden Fair Mall)--3G nanos in stock, 80 GB silver case classics in stock, black case classics backordered due to high demand.

Best Buy--will get them in early this coming week.

Fry's Electronics--will get them in middle of this coming week.

Circuit City--will get them middle of this coming week.

Target--arriving some time this coming week.

Wal-Mart--arriving some time this coming week.

Sears--arriving some time this coming week.

Costco and Sam's Club--unknown but probably real soon.

The Apple Store at Woodfield Mall in Chicago has most of the released line-up. The only one I didn't see on display was the 160GB Classic.

Just back from the Mall of America store, got a silver 80Gb Classic for myself. They had all the Nanos out, the Shuffles, and I believe both Classics, but I could be mistaken.

I called the Sagemore store earlier today and they told me i would have no trouble getting an iPod... when i came in the store at about 7:30 it was swamped, and it looked like the only had a few left of each color and capacity... I didn't even see Nanos or Shuffles!
