New iPod mini lineup
Apple today unveiled the second generation lineup with a new 4GB model priced at $200 and a new 6GB model with 50 percent more storage priced at $250. Both iPod mini models feature increased battery life of up to 18 hours, USB charging and an ultra-portable, lightweight design available in four colors (pink, blue, silver, and green). "The iPod mini is now available at the magic price point of $199," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "At this breakthrough price point, and with more than twice the battery life, the new iPod mini should appeal to even more music lovers." The 4GB and 6GB models of iPod mini are available worldwide immediately and include earbud headphones, a belt clip case, and a USB 2.0 cable.
An optional USB power adapter is available for $30 which easily charges iPod mini when traveling. Other accessories include the iPod Dock for $40 for desktop syncing and charging, in-ear headphones for $40, an arm band for $30, a lanyard for $20 and FireWire cable for $20.
