    Okay with regards to the new iPod Touch the information I have obtained is that SIRIM (as mentioned the "FCC" equivalent in Malaysia) has not gone through with the approval yet. This is because like most government offices in Malaysia, during this month of Ramadan and "Hari Raya" coming up next week ( in Arabic)... most government employees work less hours and go on holiday for several days, or up to a week.

    As for the iPhone3G... Who knows.
