The 240GB iPod debuts – sort of

Apple iTunes“Apple’s current iPod Classic tops out at 120 gigabytes, which the company says is good for approximately 30,000 tunes,” Rik Fairlie reports for The New York Times. “But Rapid Repair, a firm that specializes in repairing iPods and other digital music devices, will soon enable you to upgrade your iPod to Toshiba’s new 240-gigabyte hard drive. And that should give you room for roughly 60,000 tracks.”

“The company will begin offering the upgrade in two to three weeks, when the brand-spanking-new drives arrive, says Aaron Vronko, service manager for Rapid Repair. Only fifth-generation iPod Video devices are compatible with the new 1.8-inch drive, however,” Fairlie reports. “The price for the new drive will be $295.”

Fairlie reports, “Rapid Repair will upgrade the drive for you at no cost, or you can crack open your iPod and install the drive yourself.”
