Apple updated its Australian online store with updated shipping times for the new iPod touch and iPod nano that were unveiled alongside the new iPhone last month. You may remember Apple made pre-orders available Sept. 14 and promised the first batch will be shipped to customers by the end of October. The pre-orders still look to be on-track for a delivery soon.

However, if you are just getting around to ordering, there is good news: the Apple Online Store is displaying shipping times of ‘3 weeks’ this evening for the iPod touch and ‘2 weeks’ for the iPod nano. There is not a backlog like the iPhone 5.

Pre-orders for both music players are also available on Amazon.

Thanks, Jerry Lee!

Update 8:53AM: According to several 9to5mac tipsters, Apple is preparing to ship the fifth-generation iPod touch to customers. Furthermore, the Japan launch for the new iPod touch looks to be October 9, Macotakara reports.
