Continued mini delays
Apple has reportedly informed buyers with iPod minis on back-order at the Apple Store that their orders are not expected to arrive for another three weeks, notes. On account of the extended delays, Apple is offering customers who have already been waiting for a considerable time the option of replacing their order with a 15GB iPod model at no additional charge. "We apologize for any inconvenience. Your business is very important. If you would like an iPod sooner, we are offering to replace your iPod mini with a 15GB iPod at no additional charge. This model usually ships within 24 hours," an email from Apple says. Meanwhile, reseller sources inform MacNN that no iPod minis have shipped to the channel in the last two weeks. Apple continues to cite "incredible demand" for the delays.
