    This is strange on UK Amazon store i found this - say's that it is an Apple product and is first avaliable on the 5th September.
    Although the price and name seem a little odd might this just be a live preperation page for an entirely new product?

    Woah, have you seen the price though? Maybe it's just a hoax.

    no the dates make sense - released on 24th but avaliable to order on 5th - read announced on the 5th (pre-orders) avalibale on the 24th.

    Certainly a place-holder for something to be announced tomorrow.

    ASIN codes are Amazon's internal-use item codes, similar to ISBN or UPC codes. Looks like the name 'Rapid Asin' is some artefact of Amazon's system for putting pending items into their catalogue.

    Good find! :)

    edit:

    There's also this:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Needed-pote...9167752-8079620?ie=UTF8&qid=1188855361&sr=1-1

    ... priced at £615. Note the technical details placeholder. Possibly consistent with an MP3 player (although the price would suggest otherwise). Maybe iPhone-related?
