    If any Europeans have information about the new iPods availability in Europe post it here.
    Apple said May 9th, but maybe we'll get it earlier?

    Mine (ordered minutes after the UK store came back up) is still in the "Being Assembled" stage. I'm actually not that hopefully of even getting it by May 9th, let alone earlier!

    8-10 days for me from the 30th. Ready to ship on the 9th sounds about right.

    Anyone know if they all come from Holland like the refurb stuff?

    Can't wait - filling my time ripping tunes :p

    I'm in Austria, and I ordered two iPods on 29-04-2003 in the Apple online store. Yesterday I received the "Order was sent" confirmation with a shipping date of "02-05-2003". I wonder how long it takes...? :cool:

    Update: This is what the shipping information page at "Kühne und Nagel" (contracted delivery company) tells me at the moment:

    Damn it mine hasn't shipped! When I got my new iBook last year the K&N ETA was useless. I am in the UK and that was the ETA of it arriving at K&N in Luxemburg (why?). From there it spent a day being transfereed to IEC and then another 2 days to reach me in London. Which model did you order? I'm getting a 30Gb and want to know if the reason it hasn't shipped is because it's a different model.

    I would be really interested what people think of the new iPods. I am planning to get one in the next couple of weeks.

    I ordered the 15GB iPod. If this is a internal ETA then i am not happy, why show internal delivery times and have customers view them?

    Infact i hate ordering stuff from apple, but its a necessary evil, everything takes 2 weeks + to actually get here.

    I ordered an update CD for my iBook on the 19th and its still not here! How long does it take to burn a CD and simply post it from Ireland, 10 working days according to Apple, if i knew another mac user in Blackpool with broadband my life of updating would be so much easier.

    Plus today of all days is a bank holiday, i hate them as well!

    I'm on a windows machine here at the moment so i cannot post a screenshot but basically its says it has arrived at EDC today and the ETA is 6th May.

    Copied and Pasted as well:

    05 may 03 40 60 arrived at EDC Apple; Taiwan 06 may 03
    02 may 03 32 55 flight departed KN Taiwan 06 may 03
    02 may 03 65 95 custom cleared (export) KN Taiwan 07 may 03
    02 may 03 30 60 departed from product source KN Taipei 07 may 03
    02 may 03 05 00 boxes scanned KN Taipei 07 may 03
    02 may 03 00 05 Data received from supplier Apple; Taiwan 07 may 03
    11 dez 02 32 15 flight assigned KN Taiwan 16 dez 02

    New info:

    Today I emailed a computerstore called Officeline in Copenhagen which sells Apple products. A sales guy told me that they would get 10 & 15 gb iPods by the end of this week and 30 gb iPods at the end of next week.
    I ordered a 15 gb... woohoo.

    So it seems like Apple's date (may 9) may come true.

    There are not ETAs displayed for me :( --> Look at the page source:

    Code:
    <tr>
    <td COLSPAN=6> </td>
    <td NOWRAP>04 may 03</td>
    <td>32 55</td>
    <td>flight departed</td>
    <td>KN Taiwan</td>
    <td NOWRAP> </td>
    </tr>

    06 may 03 40 00 arrived at transit hub Irish Express 08 may 03
    05 may 03 30 00 departed to NDC KN Luxemburg 07 may 03
    05 may 03 40 60 arrived at EDC KN Luxemburg 06 may 03
    02 may 03 32 55 flight departed KN Taiwan 06 may 03
    02 may 03 65 95 custom cleared (export) KN Taiwan 07 may 03
    02 may 03 30 60 departed from product source KN Taipei 07 may 03
    02 may 03 05 00 boxes scanned KN Taipei 07 may 03

    Ordered mine in Australia on the 29th, still "being assembled", does that mean they are not in the country or that they can't send them out because they are not released yet?:confused:

    As I said, they just happen to be not displayed for me. Trust me, I would be the first one to want to know the ETA date of my shipment... :confused:

    The 'apple centre' in Soho that pretends to be an apple store said they would have them in by 'the end of the week'.

    Just got email saying it has been shipped :) Don't know where it has been shipped from so can't predict how long it will take. Anyone know where they are sent from?
