i just noticed this earlier today from the letter that Tim Cook wrote to his fellow employees, take a look at the highlighted part...pretty clear from that that the iPod Touch won't ship for another week or so....Mine says still processing as well... didn't even stop to think about iTunes. Hmm... Would apple hold of shipping these bad boys until iTunes is released. I am buying these for my kids and was more anxious to get them but if the shipment is delayed until the Middle of October, these may just turn into Christmas Gifts.
Yes, and the last iPod touch (4th generation, white-Edition) has been released on 12th October in 2011. This might be a hint.As to when it comes out I think the 12th because all other posts have been 1st or 2nd week and also they released the iPhone 5 on that date to?
