Ipod Nano In Canada?

Anyone here in Canada got a ipod nano already from a retail store like futureshop or bestbuy?

I don't think any of the retail stores in Canada have them yet, but I would like to know when they are getting them. I went to a futureshop on saturday and asked if they had an iPod Nano, but he had no idea what that was and thought I was referring to a mini. If anyone knows, or has a good estimate, when the Nano's will reach retail stores like futureshop in Canada can you please let us know. It kinda sucks that there is no apple store where I live, I think there is only one in Canada?

i know for sure the apple store in yorkdale has it.. which is the only one in canada.
you can PREORDER on september 13th from bestbuy which probably means they won't have them in stock. if you want a nano quick apple store is only way to go

Yeah why wait for it to come out in Best Buy only to be sold out, try and deal with the FS people that don't even know what it is, or drive all the way to the Apple Store?

Just get it from the website. You'll have it in a week.

All the stores in my area are notorious for not being able to keep iPods stocked. Not only does ordering it from apple.ca guarantee I get one as quickly as possible, but I get to use my student discount as well.

It looks like my Nano is going to arrive before Futureshop, Best Buy, London Drugs, etc, get any in stock.

I talked to the Campus Computer Store at the University of Saskatchewan, and they said that they will have them in within 2-3 weeks (as of Friday), and they were taking preorders, so I ordered mine off the Apple.ca store (with the educational discount), and it should arrive about Tuesday or Wednesday of this coming week

Most Canadian retailers are going to be recieving their first shipment of Nano's near the end of the month.
