Email from Apple last night: "Pick up iPod nano on Thursday.
Choose from all the brilliant colors—including some only available from Apple—and take home iPod nano on Thursday from your favorite Apple Retail Store. Find a store"

Well I've been to 2 Apple stores and 3 Target's this morning... Nothing!

Its pretty ridiculous the Apple stores dont even know when they will receive the new Nano's..

If anyone happens to find them in a Target or Best Buy or anywhere for that matter post it up here.

Thanks!

The Apple Store near me doesn't get its daily (well, minus Sundays) FedEx delivery until early in the afternoon, so they def. wouldn't have had it this morning...

And yeah, for the most part, they don't know what's being sent (until it arrives). Apple auto-replenishes its stores, ... the stores don't actually "place an order" for products themselves...

Just called my local store and they said they just got the delivery in and they will be out on the floor in a few minutes.

I'm off to go get one.

They have to check each iPod into their inventory, .. individually. Sounds like they started with the touches?

in the sunlight this thing looks REALLY purple/grey!? Its not like the Jet Black of the 4G.. Id say its really dark grey almost. You cant really tell unless its in person.
Other than that I love it...Video quality is awesome!!

heres a pic of it next to the 4G

The "click" sound the scroll wheel makes is noticeably different too
The screen just seems SO much bigger when holding it and using it.
Sync times are super fast too!

Doesn't it feel nice in your hands!?

Did you notice the purpleish hue I was talking about?

Also, is all your album art work showing up? Mine isn't for some reason. (on the nano)

Feels nice, I really like the way the color looks.

It looks like my artwork is OK. All the ones I checked were OK. The ones that didn't have artwork didn't have it in iTunes either.

After resetting my play count it oddly fixed my artwork problem!?
Anyways all is well!

The more and more I look at it, I fricken love the color of this thing. It just feels so smooth to. 100% different feeling from the 4th gen nano. I couldnt be more pleased with this thing!
