“Apple has teamed with Seagate to deliver a revision to its trendy iPod mini digital music player early next year. Apple Computer this month has entered into production the first update to its colorful iPod mini digital music player, highly reliable sources tell AppleInsider. The production, which is now taking place in Asia, has reportedly been underway for at least a week. The company’s objective is to produce an ample supply of the players before making an official announcement of the new models in early 2005,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
“Inside the new iPod mini will be a 5GB hard disk capable of storing up to 1250 music tracks, a 25% increase over the the current iPod minis which hold 1000 songs on a 4GB drive,” Jade reports. “Apple is reportedly hoarding as many of Seagate’s 5GB ST1 drives as possible, in an effort to build a stockpile of the new minis that will adequately cater to initial product demand.”
