    There is alot of talk of the 4g ipod touch to be shipped after the 7th of September since this is when the free ipod touch with mac deal ends.But at the iphone 4 event apple said that they want to sell "tens of millions facetime devices in 2010",in order to help reach this goal it might start shipping before the 7th. Do you think apple will do this or continue to use the free ipod with mac deal to get rid of old ipods?

    Obviously, they are going to get rid of the old iPods first.

    i heard people talking about the 4g getting shipped 2-3 weeks after the event and that makes sense because now probably in China factories are still producing thousands of ipods so in september 1st apple will order them and they will ship a few weeks after. thats like when you buy something on ebay it usually ships by a few weeks. The same thing is with apple.

    update: by the way this is the second time it happened to me because i wanted to be first to post a comment but by the time i was done, other people posted before me. i was probably the first one to view this

    It really doesn't matter who posts first, it really is immature to even try.

    I guess they could do both,they could start shipping the ipod touch 4g on september 5th/6th,or make the deal for 3g's only. Last year when did they show the new ipod and when did they start shipping?

    honestly, as long as Apple releases the iPod touch 4G before the end of september there is still going to be a high probability that millions will sell before years end, considering holiday season will be in a few months. I don't think they will release it before the 7th, it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense.
