The iPad Mini will be announced on Oct 23*. That’s just twelve days away.
But what will it cost? And why did Apple price the new iPod at $299? That is only $100 less than the iPad 2. For something a quarter of the size of the iPad. $299 (or less!) has to be the price of the iPad Mini.
Will Apple lower the price of the new iPod and, subsequently, the older iPod? They just started selling the new iPod last week. Plus, it is not like Apple didn’t know about the iPad Mini when they announced the new iPod.
In all the scenarios I can envision, the price of the new iPod seems shady and embarrassing for Apple.
