4GB fourth-generation iPod nanos appear in Europe [updated]

Following an appearance on Amazon’s German site (Translated link), a number of 4GB fourth-generation iPod nanos have been spotted on store shelves (Translated link) by a Dutch Apple enthusiast website. According to the report, the 4GB model is available in all nine colors and sells for €119 (roughly $169). It is unclear whether the 4GB model is meant as a third option for the European market, or whether Apple is simply trying to get rid of stock produced before the decision to go with only two models (8GB and 16GB) was made.

Update: Apple has confirmed the existence of the 4GB fourth-generation iPod nano, with a company spokesperson saying it made a “limited number of 4GB iPod Nanos for some international markets” while declining to reveal which markets would get the devices.

Shown on the amazon.de site but not the UK one, so apparently for Europe less the UK. Who’d want it anyway? My 8Gb v3 nano is irritating because of its low capacity for video.

So Europe is already getting their iPods but I can’t even find the 16gb iPod over here in the states.  I have to wait until October… :(

I ordered the 16GB Nano 4.gen one hour after the announcement at the German Apple Online Store on the 9th of September. Delivery should have been in 5-7 workdays.

Now I received an email from Apple, that expected delivery is supposed to be the 29. of September.

Looks like Steve is very optimistic with his delivery estimates on stage…

I noticed yesterday that the 4Gb 4th gen iPod nanos are available for purchase in Canada on the BestBuy website. They have them in blue, green, pink, purple, orange, and red but not in yellow, silver, or black.

Personally I’m debating whether or not I want the 16 Gb version in purple or if I will just stick with my 3rd gen 8Gb nano. The only things really going for the new one are the colour (so pretty!) and the increased capacity. I really prefer the shape of the 3rd gen nanos better.

I’m in Australia and to my surprise 4Gb 4th gen Nanos showed up at work on Monday. They’re not really worth it. The 8Gb version is selling for $193, and the 4Gb is $167, That’s at Big W
