5GB iPod mini?

Q: I am considering buying an iPod Mini but I heard that Apple will be upgrading this product’s storage capacity to 5GB and offering it at the same price as today’s 4GB mini.

Any truth to this rumor? If so, when would this upgrade take place?

A:  Stop by iLounge next Tuesday to find out – we’ll have a full report on Apple’s new models.

Steve Jobs will be presenting new Apple products at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco, and traditionally announces such upgrades during his keynote speech, which will be given at 9:00 am Pacific time.

With any luck, there will be more than just a larger capacity iPod mini.
