iPod touch shipping, unboxing photos on flickr [updated]


The iPod touch is now available at some Apple Stores, and iLounge’s unboxing and iPod/iPhone comparison photos of the device have appeared on photo-sharing site flickr. The iPod touch comes in a black box, similar to the iPhone’s, and features a photo of the device’s “Now Playing” screen, with album art from artist Corinne Bailey Rae, on the top. Inside the box, and shown in our photos, is a simple clear plastic stand that can be attached to iPod touch’s side to prop it up for widescreen video viewing. While the iPhone’s first screen shows users a picture of the Earth, and states “Activate Phone” before the first sync, the iPod touch shows a picture of an iPod cord, with an arrow above it pointing to iTunes’ icon.

In addition to the photos, iLounge has posted a brief video of the iPod touch in action on YouTube. It is unclear how many Apple Stores have received shipments of the device.


Updated: Readers report that iPod touch units are now available in limited supplies in stores throughout the East and West Coasts, as well as the Midwest. One suburban Chicago store already has units on display for hands-on testing.

So you used HIS picture. I was the first to post Touch pictures, but maybe it was because of the bad quality of the picture and the fact that it was taken in the Apple store. lol

I ordered mine within minutes of it becoming available on the Australian Apple Store. Current estimate places delivery on 3 Oct. I’m pissed that the US gets it first.

Well that’s great. Can we finally get iTunes Wi-Fi now. I mean, myself being an iPhone user, have been waiting since last week. Apple could have used us as Guinea pigs for it. I wouldn’t mind.

I’m with Chris. Surely this signals the arrival of iTunes WiFi.

Does this mean that the U.S. Apple online store will start shipping to customers before Sep. 28?

Just called the Apple Online store.  No move-up on the 9/28 ship date, but holding firm to that date.

I ordered as soon as the Apple store came back up after the Jobsnote and my order status has changed to “Prepared for Shipment” and I can no longer cancel. I’m hoping maybe it will go out tomorrow…

Posted by David on September 13, 2007 at 10:53 PM (CDT)


David, what time did you order it?  I ordered on Sep 5, 2007 at 02:49 PM PDT, which was the first time I could access the Apple Store, and it still says “Not Yet Shipped” and I can cancel my order (which I would do if I could actually get to the nearest Apple store).

Posted by Mike on September 13, 2007 at 11:08 PM (CDT)


“Michael” Do you know how many 16GB ones were left? I think I may go buy one tomorrow.

Posted by Matt on September 13, 2007 at 11:31 PM (CDT)


“Mike” - my order was placed at 12:15 PDT. I only got you by a couple of hours so hopefully your will go out soon. Good luck…

Posted by David on September 13, 2007 at 11:56 PM (CDT)


Thanks, I really hope I get it soon, I just hope that it ships out ASAP and that I won’t be getting it after stores like Target and Best Buy do.

I just came back from the 5th Ave. Apple Store in NYC and they do have them on display and being sold.

At the time they have both capacities.
