    Hi guys !!

    I will be near an Apple Store on Sept. 9th (in Montreal, Canada actually) and would like to know ... is there anything special going on in the store during the conference. Like live broadcasting or special promotions ?

    Just wondering because I just can't wait for next wednesday to come. Since I lost my iPod Touch last february, I was holding myself from buying a new one and waiting for september to come.

    Do you think the new models will be available right away in the store on the 9th ?

    Thanks you.

    I doubt there will be because there never has been in the past and you waited 7 months to get a new one? Why would anyone do that?

    Wow are you serious? People who don't believe there's going to be a third gen are just narrow minded. Here's the run down of evidence:

    -Ipods have been refreshed every year in September
    -OS 3.0 isn't working too well with the second gen
    -They need to update the prices (hint hint Zune HD)
    -If they don't update, the Zune HD will own the Second gen touch

    I was going to buy a touch in June, but decided to wait as well :D

    I don't think there will be anything special in store, just that it'll be up for sale right after the Keynote (I'm like 90% sure that's what happened last year)

    He didn't say there wasn't going to be a new iPod Touch, he said there probably wasn't going to be any events at Apple Stores.

    Nothing special will be happening at the Apple Store. But the new lineup of iPods will be announced on the 9th, and will probably be in stores within a few days, or a week. (I think that's how it was last year)

    Nothing special will be happening at the store. However, the new touch should be available either September 9th, or the subsequent day.

    I'm probably gonna go to the Apple 5th Ave. store in Manhattan. What time do you think it will be available for sale to the public? 12:01AM on September 9th?

    It won't be available until after Apple finishes their special event keynote which is set to begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific.

    You will probably be able to buy the iPod touch at the end of the day (if it is released on the day), or else you will get a definite release date and you can pre-order.

    usually after announcing new products, they won't be available right away when you go to apple store. they don't even have any display that day. so you have to wait for few days to test them at store. you might order them through online or just make a reservation on your order at store. this time I have no doubt. possibly people who live in San Francisco will see them next day at store.

    So if I want one the earliest possible, would I have to go to the Apple store on the 10th, or can I just go to Walmart?

    Doubtful. They'll likely have it a few days later. The Apple Retail Stores typically receive the new product first (under embargo).
