If you have noticed the supply of 4G iPods seems to be quite healthy. Apple has a 1-2day shipping estimate, and many Apple resellers had a decent stock. Compared to the mini, the 4G iPod is everywhere. Something tells me that Apple finally realized that they should have a huge stock of iPods because they have become so popular. I bet they built up a stockpile so that mini fiasco would not repeat itself. Apple would have shot themselves in the foot if both iPod models were hard to get!
