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?

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! :)


There's also this:

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