    hey guys,

    I am planning on getting the 3rd generation ipod, as im selling my 1st generation(probably..)

    I am just wondering when is the ACTUAL DATE of iPod touch 3G's release. and when I say "ACTUAL DATE", I mean the date when it will be available at best buy and such.

    thanks!

    My guess would be September 11-13, somewhere around there....

    It's not 100% confirmed that we are even going to see a new iPod touch, however:

    1G iPod touch was previewed on Sept 5/2007 and available Sep 13/2007.
    2G iPod touch was previewed on Sept 9/2008 and available Sep 9/2008 (within 24 hrs).

    So if this trend continues then somewhere between Sep 9/2009 - Sep 15/2009.

    Its a wait-and-see game... Engadget mentioned Sep 10 but it's not 100% confirmed that this is the release date though...

    It will be out within 24-48 hours of it's announcement. Maybe 72 hours in more rural areas.

    People can say "oh it's not announced so we don't know" all they want. The facts are that every sign is pointing towards a new Touch on September 9th. All anyone has to do is go back and look at last year's build up to the September Keynote. Everything that happened last year is repeating this year.

    Well, I'm seriously hoping that there is no more one-month delay for the Malaysia market like was the case for the iPod touch 2G last year... The actual launch in the US was September but we only got it in October, due to some stupid customs requirements holding back the product release...

    Which is why I only got my touch in October instead...
