Apple iPod mini rollout
Apple today announced that is to July due to the much stronger than expected demand in the U.S., which it says is "far exceeding the total planned supply through the end of June." Apple says expects to ramp up its manufacturing of the iPod mini to meet worldwide demand in the July quarter. "The iPod mini is a huge hit with customers in the U.S. and we're sure it will be the same worldwide once we can ramp up our supply in the July quarter." The iPod mini was scheduled to be availabe worldwide in April, following the February introduction in the US.
