    I am new to this forum although I have come here to read quite often in order to get the latest news on the iPod Touch!
    I have now decided to buy an iPod Touch 2G, but unfortunately have been unable to find one. I have heard that Canada is having an iPod touch shortage right now. Is this true for the whole of Canada, as for me (in Quebec City) I have been unable to get my hands on one.
    If indeed there is a shortage, how long do you believe it will last?

    Just a little notice to let you guys know that I have finally found my iPod touch. I found it at a local costco. Thanks for all the advice on where to find one. As for people who are having difficulty finding one in Canada I heArd that the shortage should be fixed within 2 weeks.
    thanks!

    Im soooo... anxious to get my iPod Touch but am decided on whether to get the 8 or 16GB model (60$ price difference) any thoughts on that too?

    I got mine at Best Buy in store. They had 3 left when I got mine. I suggest checking the store stock on the futureshop or Best Buy website because they seem to be pretty accurate from my experience.

    Yeah, order it from Apple. It will arrive within 2-3 days.

    I bought a 32g yesterday at futureshop but it was the second place i went to and it looked to be the last 2nd gen. The first place,The Source, said that they were having a hard time getting them in so buying straight from Apple may be the quickest way right now.
    get the most storage capacity you can, you never regret having too much storage space.

    Finally today, I called all of the stores in Quebec City that sell the iPod Touch and NONE of them had any iPod touchs at all (again). They all said that Apple isnt supplying them at all with any Touchs. I really think Apple is having a problem here in Canada. Any ideas on when this might be restored. And btw, it is impossible for me to buy from apple.ca
