Griffin intros iTrip for iPod nano

imageGriffin Technology today announced a new iTrip FM transmitter for Apple’s iPod nano. The latest iTrip uses the nano’s LCD display for on-screen tuning, and features a new “sled” design that wraps around the bottom and back of the nano, and securely connects via the iPod’s dock and headphone connectors. The nano slides into the device and stays attached using “patented micro grip technology.”

“Griffin’s SmartDisplay technology seamlessly integrates all functions and features with the iPod nano,” explains the company. “iTrip information is displayed on the best screen in the industry: the gorgeous iPod nano screen. This innovative approach to displaying station and set up information is a first and only available with Griffin products. One touch navigation puts all iTrip functions at your fingertip. This also makes iTrip for iPod nano the easiest-to-operate FM transmitter, ever.”

The new iTrip also features SmartSound volume control, selectable mono or stereo modes, stores the last 3 used station presets and supports US, International and Japanese tuning modes. The iTrip for iPod nano’s introductory price is $49.99 and is expected to ship in November.

Does anyone know about the ship status of this?  I’m trying to get it as a Christmas present for someone, but all of the online stores say “Coming soon”.

I had placed an order back on 12/2/05 with the assumption that the unit would ship starting on 12/10/05.  Not so.  I finally got a response as to a possible new ship date… Looks like 12/23/05 at the earliest.  Does Griffin usually miss ship dates?
