View Full Version : Has your 16GB Nano shipped?

Just curious if anyone's Nano's have shipped yet! What colour, and what country have you ordered from?

New Zealand here, waiting impatiently for a 16GB Green Nano! I wonder what is causing the shipping delays for the 16GB versions... memory chip shortages of the 16GB chips?
The NZ Apple Store says ships in 7-10 business days (but my order status says ships in 1-3)... and the US Store still says 2-4, but the 8GB's all ship within 24 hours.

Grr... hurry up :p

Update: Order shipped 15 September.... TNT tracking says it hasn't budged from Hong Kong for 1.5 days. Should be here by Friday I hope.

Update: It is here! The green colour is beautiful... a bit darker than on the Apple website with a nice metallic sheen. It's a really nice green! The corners on the ends aren't that sharp. I don't know what people are complaining about. This thing is so incredibly tiny... I love it already! If you haven't already, and your MP3 player needs replacing (mine really did... a chunky old 5GB Creative thing that was a real nuisance to work with Mac), buy an iPod Nano 4G and you won't regret it!

Sync speed is pretty good, writes at about 11MB/sec, vs 16MB/sec for a 160GB Classic.

It hasn't shipped yet, but I ordered on the 9th and it still says ships in 5-7 days. Hopefully it won't take so long!

Mine turned to "prepared for shipment" over the weekend, so I'm guessing that means it is manufactured and packaged and that it will ship out the next business day.

Yay :D hope the shipping is speedy. When I've ordered standard in-stock products from the NZ Apple Store, they have taken as little as 15 hours from the "your product has shipped" notification (which came a few hours after ordering) to arriving on my doorstep... and that's coming straight from the Apple warehouse in SYDNEY! Pretty impressive. But this one's probably coming straight from China, so it might take a little longer :(

Just ordered a Purple engraved 16GB today after a big let down from the apple store I usually go to. They told me they "hope" to have the 16GB's by the end of the week, so I just ordered online thinking i'd get it at about the same time, plus I get free engraving.Looking at this thread though maybe not.....

Ordered direct from Apple, in UK. Decided on both apple Exclusives; Red and Engraved, naturally.

ETA 23 Sep, 2008 - 29 Sep

Because my delivery address was different from billing, I got security checked, which delayed the payment going through but shouldn't affect the shipping as they're not even around yet.

Hmm

Well, one of the clerks at my local apple store keeps telling me that they have 16GB nanos, but they actually don't. Our local Best Buys have only 8GB, even though the website says the 16GB are in as well. Don't believe anything until you see it...

Best Buy in Cary, NC says they "had a few in", but that they sold very quickly.

This is kind of a tease. Though, without the DLO cases out yet, I wouldn't be taking it out much anyway. With the 3G I waited a couple months after release.

Why don't they get the high-capacity ones in 1st, anyway?

You mean the shipment originated from Shanghai? Strange, mine came from Shenzhen. Maybe they have different iPod manufacturing facilities... 1 for each colour perhaps? :p

But it would make sense to make all the iPods in the same place, I would have thought.

The Australia and NZ Apple Stores have 16GB models in-stock for within 24 hr shipping.

Looks like Apple might finally be catching up with demand for online orders... but it might be another few weeks before most retail stores are well-stocked with both models.

Oh well. If it's true that Apple made a last-minute decision to go 8/16GB rather than 4/8GB (why else would there be 4GB models in some countries on sale in stores, and delays on a 16GB model?), I'm happy they did make that decision anyway.

Well mine shipped Friday, all three, says they left the fedex facility. All I can say is don't waste your money on next day air, I paid for next day air and it won't get here until wed! even if it left monday I should have had them tuesday.

I think I will complain, is there any chance of getting my shipping back? Also Apple locked up my credit LOL, not their fault, but they billed all three nanos and shipped all three nano's separately. I initially had two $1.00 hits to my card, then three for $211, then the shipping charge of $17. So my bank was a little worried.

Absolutely! Call them up. My MacBook was shipped after the promised shipment date, so I called, and they reimbursed the shipping charge. I think they gave me a 20 dollar discount as well. Definitely worth it. I'm pretty sure I ordered my MacBook the day the new ones were announced as well (at that time).
