Apple has unveiled a 6GB iPod mini and two iPod photo models with high-resolution color screens. The new iPod mini line-up includes the 4GB model for $199 (down from $249) and a 6GB model with 50 percent more storage priced at $249. Both iPod mini models feature increased battery life of up to 18 hours, USB charging and a portable lightweight design available in four colors.
The iPod photo lineup has been augmented by introducing two new models - a slim 30GB model, holding up to 7,500 songs, for $349 and a 60GB model, holding up to 15,000 songs, for $449. Both new iPod photo models feature a high-resolution color screen. Both models hold up to 25,000 digital photos and will feature the ability to import photos from digital cameras via a new iPod Camera Connector.
The new iPod Camera Connector is an optional accessory that enables customers to connect their digital camera to iPod photo and import their photos into the iPod. By connecting the iPod Camera Connector and a digital camera, customers can transfer digital images to their iPod photo, providing additional storage space so they can take more pictures. Imported photos are immediately viewable on iPod photo's color screen, and can also be brought back to iPhoto on the Mac or various photo applications on the PC. The iPod Camera Connector is expected to be available in late March for $29.
