picIn the final part of his Keynote speech today at MWSF Steve Jobs related how the Apple had sold 730,000 iPods and had propelled Apple to over 2 million iPods sold in total. In Oct/Nov Apple had taken 31% of the entire market share of MP3 players, 55% share of revenue and it was now Number 1 in units and revenue.

He announced that the 10GB iPod would be replaced by a 15GB model selling at the same price of $299.

Also Apple has released a pair of In-ear headphones selling at $39 and they are available from today. (These look very similar to the Sony EX71SL’s)

Today Apple launch the second member of the iPod family - the iPod mini. This will have a

  • 4GB HD storage capacity

  • Hold 1000 songs

  • 0.5 inches thick

  • Size of a business card

  • Cost $249

    It will use the same award winning interface as its big brother but will feature a new solid state “clickwheel” with function buttons moved under the wheel. The iPod mini Click Wheel gives you the enhanced durability and sensitivity of the iPod Touch Wheel. The Click Wheel takes best advantage of miniscule space and lets you scroll single handedly though your songs. Like its (slightly) bigger brother, iPod mini gives you over 25 minutes of skip protection and lasts up to 8 hours on a single battery charge.

    It will use the familiar top controls of the 3G iPod and the Apple docking port on the base. It will come complete with a Firewire and USB cable, belt clip, Dock and armband.

    The finish is anodised aluminum and a range of colours will be available -

  • Silver

  • Gold

  • Blue

  • Pink

  • Green

    These new iPods will start to ship in the US in February and Worldwide in April.
