Apple's iPod Touch, which is basically a phone-less iPhone, has started shipping in Australia a few days before the "expected" ship date of 28 September.

The iPod Touch, which was announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs earlier this month, was scheduled to arrive by the end of September but the first orders were fulfilled a few days earlier than expected.

The new iPod comes in two configurations, an 8GB version that costs AU$419 and a 16GB model that costs AU$549. The battery in each can handle 22 hours of audio playback or five hours of video, according to Jobs.
