As a future post secondary student, I am applicable for a $259 rebate towards the purchase of an ipod touch with the purchase of a Mac. This offer is valid only until September 8, 2009. The 2nd gen ipod touch was released on September 9, 2008 according to the Buyer's Guide section. So I would assume that that the ipod touch 3rd gen and the new nano would be released on the 9th after this rebate has expired. Is this a fair assumption from Apple's ordinary business practice or is there a possibility that it may be released sooner. Comments?
