The Great iPod Shortage of 2009?
image via Techplore
Here's something you don't hear every day.
Our friends at Apple Insider are reporting that the iPod line inventory is low as Apple's big September event approaches.
Speaking with Apple Authorized Resellers, Ars Technica has found that the current stock of iPod models is no longer being
shipped, and all of the current SKUs are being discontinued. The news is expected, as Apple refreshes its iPod lineup every
"According to insiders speaking to Ars, stock of current iPod models is running dry and new ones aren't coming in anytime soon," the report states. "This all but confirms that an iPod refresh is on the way, but we already knew that."
Rumored for the September roll out are: an iPod Touch updated with camera and various storage size options; iPod Touch Nano with camera but available in color varieties; the end of the road for the Classic; and an iPod Touch Pad built to compete against the Kindle.
Apple Insider hints at other possible announcements, too.
Historically, when it comes to announcements from Apple, there's much we can predict and also much that we can't. And just as September is a big month for announcements from Apple, August is the month when Apple is most enigmatic and silent. Since Apple hasnít disappointed our low expectations for August, there's a good chance they won't disappoint our high expectations for September.

I hope that they eliminate the iPod touch at this event

And people keep talking about a camera, but what about a microphone? Hasn't that been rumored to be on the next iPod touch as well? That would make Shazam, Voice Memos, VoIP apps, and Voice Control, etc possible without having to use iPhone headphones. Seems like that could be more useful than a camera, though both are welcomed.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

I need a new iPod touch...WITH A CPU like the iPhone 3GS and camera. I hope it's in the new iTouch.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

Good thing I just sold my iPod Touch [=

I already have an iPhone and a shuffle... what else could I need at this point. A shuffle with a camera is worthless.

I hope Apple doesn't eliminate the iPod classic all together. I love my iPod classic. It can hold a LOT of Movies and TV Shows and I always use it in my car because my in-dash unit is iPod compatible so it plugs in via the dock connector and displays all the playlists and I can watch the video on the in-dash's bigger screen. Some of these newer iPod models aren't compatible for video with in-dash units which sucks.
If they do get rid of the classic they better still make at least one iPod thats still video capable with in-dash unit's because that's the only reason I have a regular iPod when I already have every iPhone model (which aren't compatible).160GB iPod Classic

An ipod touch with camera and microphone???
Isnt it iphone already if ipod touch have all those things???
what differentiate ipod touch and iphone then????A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
