MacScoop (formerly MacOSXRumors) reports that Apple's recently released (Product) RED iPod Nano is seeing high demand, with "hundreds of thousands" of orders already placed for the AIDS-fighting product. Overall iPod demand is also said to be high, and the site's sources expect that sales for the holiday quarter will be record-breaking, surpassing even last year's 1Q sales of 14 million iPods.
High demand of the (Product) RED iPod Nano may increase the chances of bringing more (Product) RED products from Apple, perhaps starting with the MacBook, according to MacScoop. This information roughly corroborates an earlier page 2 rumor from ThinkSecret, which had also listed the iMac as a potential (Product) RED candidate.
