Today, the Apple Store team is hard at work modifying the iPod Store section for the product line reorganisation… but they missed something… (I feel like such a mega-dweeb for catching this… 🙂 )
Clearly, the wave of the iPod future is upon us, with podcasting and potential expansions in A/V technology in the works. (See this post on Neil’s blog…)
What seems to be happening to the iPod is the phaseout of the standard, shitload-of-songs-in-your-pocket-model for the shitload-of-songs-AND-PHOTOS-in-your-pocket-model.
What was their boo-boo? They list an attractively priced 20GB / 5000 song model for £209.00, but in the description copy below the Click Wheel photo, they go on to wow you with the now-non-existent 40GB model and it’s 10,000 capacity. There is no 40GB model. Not available from Apple anymore. Not even available as a iPod Photo. (Those are 30GB and 60GB…)
Here’s the window shot of the page..
So does that mean that the iPod mini I just got last week is about to be replaced/upgraded as rumoured? Did I, once again, buy an Apple product on the cusp? Argh. So it goes. I love my little silver mini… even if it gets upgraded to 6GB soon, I’m still a happy girl.
