Current iPods disappear in advance of Sept. event

Current iPods discontinued

All current iPods SKUs are being discontinued, sources in Apple's Authorized Reseller network claim. The sources note that even though stock is running low or empty in many cases, no new resupply shipments to third-party vendors have been scheduled. The dwindling numbers have been anticipated however, as an attempt by Apple to drain inventory in advance of new iPods, which should be announced in September.

Apple has hosted regular music-related events in September for the past several years, promoting both iPod- and iTunes-related developments. This year's event is expected on September 9th, and could see cameras added to the iPod touch, nano and classic. Simultaneous may be the deployment of iTunes 9, adding Blu-ray support and social networking functions.

    Buy a Mac, get an iPod

    I wonder how the Apple stores plan to handle the "Buy a Mac, get an iPod Touch free" education promotion, if they run out of present generation iPods? The promo runs through September 8th.

    Could someone will get the new model if they buy a Mac close to the 8th?

    I know many are

    saying that a video camera won't mean much to them, but I believe the added value of it to iPods will definitely start moving sales again. No other mp3 players currently have cameras, but I'm willing to bet the next crop of mp3 players from other companies will have them to follow suit.

    While supplies last

    The rebate specifically lists which models of iPods can be used to get the deal. If none are available, then you don't get the deal.

    That is not true. Creative makes an MP3 player with a camera already.
