    It's like the iP5 release but longer!

    I've order the Product Red iPod Touch maybe a week after they first went on preorder and I'm still stuck as processing orders!

    I've also ordered an iPod nano, also Product Red, which is now preparing to ship as I received an email to say it was shipping earlier than expected. This Nano isn't for me, I'm not greedy. :p

    Anyone else in the same predicament? I'm and want it now!!

    HMV in Maidstone told me they're coming in on October 20th (saw their stock screens with Loops too), if that's any use to anyone.

    No worries. Previous experience with HMV would indicate that they'll have them after the official stores. The 'Premium Reseller' in town quoted "a few weeks" (typical response from them), but if others are 'prepped to ship', I'd say any time next week would be a safe bet.

    It's being sent with "SYNCREON PARCEL DELIVERY", and the order tracking says it's being sent from a place called Hinckley (Near Birmingham).

    Looks like it will be Monday then. Which agrees with the shipment notification email.

    Another bit of info for people looking at HMV, they're starting a promotion to trade in an old (functioning, non cracked) iPod against the new models. Not sure on the amount you'd get, or the models they accept, but it may sway some people.

    Thx.

    I don't think they've had any more since then. Spoke to a very helpful chap who tells me they have pink and yellow only left in 64gb. I thought the colour wouldn't bother me too much but the yellow on the website looks like it's ill!
    He's also a bit vague as to whether they'd honour my employers discount which brings it down to £309. I might mooch by there later on before they shut.

    I've given my 4th gen to my son for his birthday and i am missing it big time. Been trying to reserve an iphone5 but i'm leaning back towards a touch again now and keeping the costs down.

    Well picked up my new one from MK tonight - it's pink, but heck I'm a girl lol..

    The yellow one looks worse to my eyes in person, it's more of a greeny yellow, "lime" the apple guy said, "bogey" said I...

    Got the online discount honoured, they had lightning to micro USB adaptors in stock so picked one of those up too (I expect to lose this though, it is seriously tiny) - and got that with the discount too, so that was a small bonus!

    What's annoying is I updated my routers firmware and now it won't let me put in more than 20 MAC addresses, so I'm going to take the opportunity tomorrow morning of having a purge, combined with a wireless password change.. Will keep me occupied for a bit..

    Will try and get some photos tomorrow, not of the ipod but using it's camera. I've found a few on flickr but early days there.

    Had a quick go running Sky Gamblers air supremacy - looks smooth and of course the screen is a welcome relief after the 4g one. Can't report on much more yet but this thing is light...
