The much rumoured iPod Mini has finally been announced. Rumours had been flying around that it would hold 2GB of music, and cost $99. If that had been the case I’d have bought one straight away.
In reality it will hold 4GB of music (good), but cost $249 (bad). Compare that with the announcement that the base iPod will increase from 10GB to 15GB and remain at the same $299 price, and I think Apple have killed most of the market for the iPod Mini even before it’s released.
The only people who will buy one now are the fashion conscious muppets with money to waste who want something to match their latest handbag.
