I think that it does make business sense.
Sell it for half the price of a 10gig one (if they go for the 4gig like people are saying). I mean if the hdd only cost around $70 they could make money off a $200 mini-pod
I already have a 20gig 3g ipod, but i’d definately get a min-pod if they were announced tomorrow. I’d end up just giving to my brother, but I just love having the newset gadget of the moment, just so if it creeps in to a conversation I can say “oh I have one of those”.
Sad I know.

6-8 hours just doesn’t cut it for me.
