Apple iPod mini arrives (err in the US)

MP3 players

Apple’s iPod mini went on sale in the US at the end of last week, so not surprisingly the first reviews of the ultra small four gigabyte hard disk based MP3 player are filtering through. There’s a neat little preview here from PC World.

The key issue for us Brits is how much will the player cost. It retails for $249 in the US, which should put it in the £200 camp in the UK. Anything more and it would start to look rather poor value for money when up against both 1-2 Gig players from Philips and Creative and the cheaper 15-20 gig jukeboxes.

Of course if you can’ wait until April to buy one you can score one fairly cheaply here.
