Looks pretty cool. I’m guessing that’s to compete with the iPod mini?

Yes, but an iPod mini has only 4 Gigs, and nowhere near that battery life.  :D

Yeah, that’s true. I think the mini will still win because people just seem to be suckers for color options.

And most people will look at an mp3 player and say “Is that an iPod?”  It’s happened to me already.  :|
