Touch screen Ipods are not coming soon.

You don't need to worry, Ipods have never been updated in the middle of a "buy a computer get a free Ipod" sale. Aslo apple doesn't not want to hurt iphone sales. I'm saying this becuase I have been waiting since Christmas for this touch screen Ipod and have been looking for hope for the last 8 months, and there has been 0 hope.

The new Nano's and Ipod Video's (6th Generation) maybe be coming out in September. I thought maybe the Nano would come before the new Video but the Buyer's Guide says "Updates Coming Soon". I guess this may mean one might come before the other.

It's my birthday next week too :). The 16th. I've asked for a iPod Video. Didn't feel like waiting for the 6th Generation.

Here's the Buyer's Guide Link http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#iPod_nano

Hate to break it to ya, the first generation iPod Nano was released during just such a promotion. The Nanos were NOT eligible for the rebate, but people were still able to get their free-after-rebate iPod Minis.

If it will bother you that a new iPod is released just a month after you buy yours, I would just wait already. I am quite confident Apple will continue what they have in seasons past and update right after the free Nano deal ends.

Thanks Sparky8 but im actually located in Canada. Best Buy and Futureshop have some really good deals now. Best Buy offers the Black and White 30 GB iPod Video (5.5G) for 269.99 and Futureshop offers if for 267.99.

Pretty good prices if you ask me. I don't imagine them going any lower than this until the release of the new 6G iPod.
