Strange...the Online Apple Store is now giving the option to "Buy Now" instead of "Pre-Order" regarding the new iPod Touch (as to be expected as this is now October), but still no ship date.

I think Apple will slowly start shipping out preorders soon, before they update the shipping estimate for new orders.

Still showing pre-order in the UK store. My order summary says "processing order" still as well.

The only fly in the ointment for me getting thoroughly excited is the point someone brought up about iTunes not being able to support the new iPod Touch until an update which is scheduled to roll out until the 19th(?) of this month.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love it if it were released today and could live without iTunes support since I live off of the cloud now.

Also, anyone else love this period right before the launch of anything? I think the anticipation of something forthcoming is exciting. Maybe I'm just sick... :p

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.

If they released the iPod touch now they should only have to push out a 10.7.x update to enable the iPod to sync.

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....

Thing is, October is 31 days long - kind of a large delivery window.

iTunes store in the UK is "buy now" instead of "pre-order" but my order summary still says "processing items" and still says "dispatch: October". No date.

Before I saw this thread, I saw that the Japanese store also lists it as 'buy now' ..I got all prematurely excited ;) only to find it is still shipping (sometime) in October. :(

Wish they would hurry up and release the thing.. I want my new toy now!!

Why should Apple change the buttons' titles to "Buy now", though the product isn't available yet? I don't get that.

Release Date

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?

Yes, and the last iPod touch (4th generation, white-Edition) has been released on 12th October in 2011. This might be a hint.
