Australian, Japanese Apple Stores receive new nanos, touches


While customers in the United States wait for their local Apple Stores to receive stock of the new fourth-generation iPod nano and second-generation iPod touch, stores in Australia and Japan have already begun selling the devices. Tom Baker has posted a number of photos showing both the new iPod nano and iPod touch from the Apple Store in Sydney, complete with the devices’ new packaging, while Flickr user Masaru Kamikura has uploaded three shots, showing the new nanos and touches on display in an Apple Store in Japan. During yesterday’s special event, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said the new 8GB nanos would be in stores in the “next few days,” with 16GB models expected to appear this weekend or early next week at latest, and the iPod touch 2G was said to be available immediately. In our brief checks, iLounge has found current availability to somewhat scattered; we recommend calling your local store before heading out to make sure they have the model you’re looking for in stock.

I think the availability of the 2G Touch in Japan is uncertain. Not all stores have them. I know the one in Sapporo does not. They said 2-4 weeks, which is what they’ve been instructed to say. Who knows. If some stores in Japan already have them, I’d say it will be sooner than 2-4 weeks.

The employee’s using an ‘Apple mind-trick’: ‘You must have the new touch. You love the new Touch.’

is the iPod Touch 2g really available in Japan already? coz I asked one of the staff at the Nagoya Apple store (Sept 12) and she told me they do not yet know when the new iPod Touch will be arriving.
