Reuters reported Tuesday afternoon that the wait list for Appleis new iPod shuffle has hit four-weeks, and that this is similar to the waiting list Apple experienced when it introduced the iPod mini one year ago.
Confirming with Appleis online Apple Store, the wait time for the US$99 512 megabyte iPod sits at 2-3 weeks, while the estimated shipping time for the as-yet to ship one gigabyte model sits at 3-4 weeks.
