Apple Store Australia is currently retailing iPod Nano at AUD$299 for 2Gb version, and $359 for 4Gb version. Black ones do not cost, however last time I heard they are more popular than the traditional white version. An Apple shop claimed to sell more than 300 units on the day it launches -- yeah they really go out of door fast.
