I spoke with Apple today regarding the iPod Nano replacement (it’s not a recall, it’s a replacement.) I sent my Nano to Apple about three weeks ago in a shipping box they provided. The friendly Apple rep told me they were running about a six week turn around on nano replacements. Having not anticipated so many returns, they had run out of shipping boxes. He apologized profusely for the delay.
Funny that Apple easily has a stockpile of seven-year-old, first-generation iPod Nanos to give out, but the difficult part is cardboard boxes. Are they not just recycling the boxes they sent out? I should know in another three weeks.
