The new ipod costs approx $249 US. It can store roughly 729 songs or 3 days worth of music. The price tag wasn't as low as most people hoped for. However the ipod mini it is still the best portable mp3 player on the market especially when combined with iTunes which works on both pcs and macs.
A smaller iPod, 4GB hard drive, comes in a variety of colours, updated firmwire and software, less buttons
It is not as cheap as most people expected
For more information
Check out apple's website at ipodmini or better yet view the Full Specs and comparision of both the mini and the normal ipod.
owen: ipod mini
owen: it costs 249 though so it isn't much cheaper than a normal ipod
alt.Binaries: a little bit cheaper than the 15GB
alt.Binaries: what, u want one
alt.Binaries says: it's about $40 cheaper I think
owen says: that sucks
alt.Binaries says: why is that>
owen says:I was hoping for a 100 dollar ipod
alt.Binaries says: remember that the smaller tech devices get the more expensive it becomes
owen says: logically if it has less memory it would be cheaper. the current mini ipod has 4gb - I was hoping it would be 1gb and sell for 100 dollars.
owen says: anybody who can afford to pay 249 for anything can save an extra 40 bucks for the full version. Unless of course you like the colours?
