Rumor: iPod mini with flash and color screen

Our favorite Apple rumor machine Think Secret claims that Apple's iPod mini will soon lose its harddrive in favor of 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB flash media. Prices could be around $199, $249 and $299, respectively. The new release will be 20 to 25 percent smaller than the current version, and also feature a color screen. More details over at Think Secret.

Nice design, mos def a rip-off of the RAZR philosophy. Makes me think at least 1GB of flash would be in a PDA this fall though.

OT: where do yall get those avatars, I want one of me like those

There's no reason why a PDA couldn't have more massive flash storage. I bet Tapwave would've pushed the envelope if they had stayed around. I still bet that we'll be hamstrung with a "massive" 256MB or something.

OT: I think they was a fire sale group discount over at avatars.com (or something.) Could it be a really strange bit of coincidence? Serendipity?

Ditto. Rip-off perhaps, but still beautiful design. If I hadn't only bought the iPod mini recently...

Will microdrives still be viable in PDA's now that flash memory is becoming cheaper and cheaper? Sure, microdrives will still be cheaper in higher capacities, but 4Gb of storage is more than enough for me.

I'd always go for flash memory instead of microdrives. Flash = less battery consumption, faster and more reliable.
