Apple just lowered the price of the 4 GB iPod mini to $199 and added a 6 GB model for $249. It looks like the color of the blue model has been tweaked, and battery life is now an estimated 18 hours. Gone are the gold model and the bundled FireWire cable and AC adapter. http://www.apple.com/ipodmini/ The price of the 60 GB iPod Photo also dropped to $449, and the 40 GB model was replaced by a $349 30 GB model. Battery life has also been improved, up to an estimated 15 hours. http://www.apple.com/ipodphoto/ The improved battery life of the mini has me considering the upgrade. I can probably sell my current mini for about the same price on eBay, and still hang onto the FireWire cable and AC adapter.
