    People kept saying to me that new ipod will be out once iphone is out of the door... but people seem too have forgotten that there is more to the world than just America...

    iphone release date:

    America & surrounding countries : June

    Europe: Late 2007

    Asia: 2008

    Releasing ipod near Christmas will mean that ipod will be directly competing with iphone in Europe! That is unless... Apple thinks that only USA matters...

    I wish Apple would just release the damn ipods! There is no perfect date for launch! least not in 2007...

    America is where they set-up... That's their "motherland"...

    If earlier release in america is such an issue for you move there (lol so not viable...)

    That's sort the way things are, well apart from EUR always gets everything a year or more later than the rest of the world (okay maybe over-exaduration, but its basically usually the flow of things)

    That's Just the way it is, Things will always be the same...

    But ipod had always been released in Europe at the same time as USA... releasing ipod and iphone at the same time in Europe is just..well...stupid...

    New ipod will totally cannibalise iphone's sales in Europe, especially with both of them releasing at the same time.

    Nokia, SonyEricsson etc are ****ing strong in Europe, unless Apple really want to compete they better not screw this up.

    Uh, Apple will release a new iPod when they're ready to be released, regardless of anything else. Even the iPhone. Even if the new model is fullscreen like the iPhone. Especially if it's 100GB+.
