    Today I got an email from Apple stating my wife's U2 iPod has been unexpectedly delayed. It will ship on or before December 2, 2004. I ordered it for her the same day it was announced. I guess there was alot of demand for this model. It was supposed to ship yesterday and expedited 2 day shipping. It's my wife's first Apple product and it does suck being her right now. Oh well, can't do anything about it now.

    Anyone else experiencing delays ?

    Apples notorious for missing those estimated ship dates... Once it arrives it'll be worth the wait though... Congrats...

    That's too bad - I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that the U2 album was just leaked at a photo shoot and it was only supposed to be on the iPod as an advance copy. ;) U2 is pissed about it, but hey, you had to see it coming...

    As long as your wife receives it before Christmas I'm sure she'll be happy. Good luck!

    Apple is not putting ANY music on ANY iPods. There is NO U2 music on the U2 iPod. It comes with a coupon for 50 bucks of the digital box set that will be available on the iTMS near the end of Nov.

    im guessing that there was a quite of bit of demand for it, and apple is notorious for those delays on things like this, sorry to hear about it

    if your date gets pushed back again be sure to call up and complain, and all that good stuff because then its just ridiculous

    I was wondering if other u2 ipod users were waiting too. I contacted my local mac store and he is expecting them at the end of the month instead of mid November. But he does have the iPod Photo, which doesn't help me.... :rolleyes:

    Any european report about the U2 iPod/iPod Photo?
    I guess the delay will be longer here :( ...
    My iPod photo was expected 2 days ago but there is no sign about it.

    Sorry to be beating a dead horse but this must be a Europe or ROTW (rest of the world) thing. It's still showing 1-2 weeks in the US store. Perhaps they've yet to update the apple store.

    Sorry to sound unsympathetic, but is anyone surprised that Apple announce a product and then have trouble shipping it?

    The only items this year that shipped on time were Motion and the iMac G5. Everything else has seen delays or problems.

    I hope your iPod turns up real soon, best of luck.

    Not true. The speed-bumped PowerBooks and iBooks were immediately available.

    The apple online store quotes shipping times as 1-2 weeks as of today. Hopefully you will see it ship far sooner then Dec. 2.

    No surprise of course about the delay, it's happened before with Apple. I'm surprised that the iPod Photo is available and not the U2 iPod which is cheaper here in Canada. But the weeks will pass and she will have her iPod eventually. Thanks for all the responses.
