According to various industry sources, it appears as if the new iPods are selling incredibly well. Indeed, many skeptics doubted whether the Apple's new iPod video would be an instant success due to a lack of significant content and the fact that the video isn't as high of quality as it probably could be. However, despite these potential drawbacks, early reports indicate that Apple is going to be seeing more profits than ever now that the new video iPod has hit the shelves.
The 5th Generation Apple iPod is definitely pushing technological boundaries by combining video capabilities into the mp3 world. Future success was undoubted, but such quick success was indeed looked upon as being not as likely. However, analysts report positively for Apple. "In our recent proprietary checks with industry and channel sources, we believe sales of 5G iPods are coming in ahead of expectations," American Technology Research analyst Shaw Wu said in a research note. "In some cases, in Apple's own channels, including its physical stores and online store, we believe 5G iPods are surprisingly outselling even the very popular iPod nano."
Businessweek has also pointed out that in most cases there is a 5-7 day delay in fulfilling the orders of the 5th Generation Apple iPod due to a constraint in supplies. Apparently, Apple is looking for a second supplier of LCD screens to relieve this constraint and get more iPods onto store shelves.
