5 GB iPod Mini?

Apple is expected to release a revised iPod mini early next year, according to AppleInsider. The revised mini is reported to be moving to a 5 GB hard drive, up from the current 4, allowing it to hold approximately 1250 songs.

Like Dell's new Pocket DJ and Rio's Carbon, sources say the new Apple player will be based around a 5GB hard drive. Hitachi, which supplies Apple with drives for the current line of iPod minis, has yet to officially introduce a 5GB version of its microdrive, though similar offerings are reportedly available from both Seagate and Toshiba.

Capacity figures aside, not much more is known about the revised mini. Rumors of potential color alterations and more 'metallic' finishes are abound, but remain unconfirmed at this time.
