iPod Mini Craze Hits Japan

The iPod Mini finally arrived in Japan:

Thousands of people lined up outside electronics stores in Japan on Saturday as Apple Computer launched sales of its iPod Mini digital music player.

Funny that the demand for the iPod Mini is still so strong the same week that Gen-4 iPods were announced. Although there's probably one reason (among many) for its popularity:

Its simple design is reportedly popular among young female users.

Does it matter that this rapidly approaching middle-age 30-something male wants a pink iPod Mini? No, seriously.

i'm finally jumping on the bandwagon. i'm buying one for the BF... Posted by: no milk on July 26, 2004 12:28 PM
You're BF is lucky. The fourth gen, or an iPod Mini? I want both. My hubby was going to get me one, but I'd rather get one myself. He's not into Macs or tech stuff, so I don't need to hear him complaining about my new "toy" months from now. LOL Posted by: ronn [TypeKey Profile Page] on July 26, 2004 06:36 PM
