    So based on the fact that we know the event is on the 14th and the fact that some retailers have price list and according to macrumors " Historically, price lists have appeared as early as a few days ahead of launch. The longest lead time in recent memory was about four days prior to a Monday iMac launch." Then we should expect these in stores on the 14th.

    His question is when can these new models be expected in stores. I would hazard the same day with possible and likely shipping delays like the Touch 2G.

    I would say that they wouldn't be available in stores on the 14th. They probably ship on that date.

    They'll be available from the online store straight away I think.

    thats what im thinking, i mean, why would steve announce something like that...and have us wait another couple weeks or whatever to actually buy it? that would mean Apple would lose a lot of money in that two weeks...

    the only exception is when they release an all new product...like air, or the iphone, which took a while to actually release after the initial announcement...
