Some shipping notices for the fifth-generation iPod touch have been sent out with an estimated arrival date of October 15th, 9to5Mac reports. Apple previously announced that the device would be available in October, and the manufacturer also released the "iPod touch User Guide For iOS 6" earlier today. Engadget's Richard Lai notes that the newest iPod touch has appeared in stores in Hong Kong, but we reached out to a few retail locations in the US and UK that had no information on when they'd be getting shipments, so your results may vary. Are you having any luck in your area?
