iPod mini now worldwide
Online Apple Stores across Europe are currently down as the company prepares the worldwide roll-out of the iPod mini, MacNN has learned. Pricing and availability are unknown at this point. In January, an Apple executive told The Guardian that Apple was looking at a U.K. price of the release until July. Even today, new U.S. orders for minis face month-long backorders. Update: The iPod mini is now available in Europe for €279, in the U.K. for £179, in Japan for ¥28,140, and other regions (prices include tax). In Canada, the mini is available for C$349, excluding taxes but including the CPCC's Blank Media Levy of $15. Delivery is expected July 24.
