The Minis

MSNBC – Yes, They’re Cool

When he announced the mini’s $249 price tag in his keynote, the reaction’ from a crowd predisposed to give standing ovations when the maestro cleared his throat’ was like the air being let out of a volleyball.

And yeah, if you look at it in the context of the competition, $249 is probably the right price for the iPod Mini. The 4 GB Rio is the same price, and I’m sure that Apple will have no trouble selling as many iPod Mini’s as they want.

I’ll bet the price comes down a bit after all the early-adopting fasion slaves get their fill. And on the other hand – that 15 GB low end iPod is looking like a pretty good deal now…
