European blog OneMoreThing posted several photos of the mysterious offering earlier this morning, noting that they were spotted on the shelves of Dutch Apple premium reseller HTR for â¬119 (or $168) and appear to be the real deal.
Separately, AppleInsider has been pointed to similar listing on the German version of Amazon.com, which ">lists the 4GB model
">lists the 4GB modelas being available in all nine colors for â¬129, and Austrian reseller Geizhals, where they're listed for â¬130.
Another Dutch reseller, A-Mac, also has the 4GB players up for sale at â¬119.
The photos published by OneMoreThing, as well as a higher resolution snap on display at Engadget, suggests the players are an official, but unannounced, offering.
Update: German blog Cyberbloc suggests that the 4GB fourth-gen nanos may be the result of a production fault, where Apple initially began manufacturing 4GB and 8GB models but made a near last-minute decision to market 8GB and 16GB models instead. As such, it's suggested that the 4GB models were a limited production that will be sold in Europe while supplies last.
Update 2:Apple Canada is also advising local resellers that they will have access to 4GB nano's next week which will retail for $139 Canadian. Quantities will be limited.
