    Well, I finally purchased my first ever Ipod... from Amazon...

    The estimated ship date is Oct 7-8. Some people on the Amazon forums are talking about longer delays for the larger capacity versions. I imagine this will only get worse till the good ole' holiday season.

    How about the rest of you? Any long delays (apple store buyers need not apply)?

    Lemme ask here, instead of posting a new thread.

    Does Amazon have NO TAX and FREE SHIPPING when buying an iPod Touch?

    Also, when could anyone expect shipping delays to diminish? 2-3 weeks is quite a stretch.

    I ordered from the Apple store but will reply anyhow. I ordered Thursday (the 25th) and watched via the FedEx tracker as it moved from Kushan -> Shanghai -> Anchorage -> Indianapolis -> Memphis -> to the sort facility at Dulles Airport a few miles from my house by Saturday (the 27th) evening. I figure it'll be delivered Monday by the time I get home.

    Ya' just can't argue against such efficiency!

    I got the 32Gb and figure on ordering another just like it as I expect my wife to not turn it loose once she uses it.

    Yes, no tax (in most states) and free super saver shipping.

    Well, here's the deal. Some people are reporting that their Touch is arriving much faster than Amazon is predicting. So you may not need to wait 2-3 weeks...

    Unfortunately, as the holiday season approaches, and as the Touch will undoubtedly become thee gift to give, it's availability will continue to decline. So waiting a few more weeks may actually hurt you...

    Same situation here, except I ordered on Sunday (21st) and it was supposed to get here the 26th, didn't, and now I'm demanding Monday or I WILL freak.

    According to the FedEx tracking site, my iPod, which was at Dulles (and quite literally within 5 minutes of my office) has now been sent back to Memphis. Is the FedEx crew on crack or what?

    I think I'm going to order one before time runs out and shipping delays occur even more.

    Gotta tell my friend this as well. I want to work on being a developer.
