    When the 5G came out, it was a couple weeks (at least) before they were available in the stores. So I ordered mine online the next day, and it probably still took a couple of weeks to get in.

    yes, 2g nano had inmediate availability.

    from ars technica:

    It's also possible that Apple will make announcements on the 5th while shipping later in the month, which would validate the date range provided by AI's sources.

    AI said there was going to be an ipod related event in mid-to-late september.

    If they really are released on the 5th, I hope they'll be available right away in stores because I was planning to go straight there right after school to get one.

    I'd say if they exist and Apple releases them soon, you have a good chance. If not, I guess not...:D (Seriously what do you expect when it's all speculation)
