So, I just found out yesterday that Apple completely scrapped the mini and replaced it with the nano. What are your thoughts on this?

http://www.apple.com/ipodnano/

As you can see, they completely erased any reference/links to the mini.

Edit: Here's a pic of the black nano

Also, here is a great article on it.

I found out about this just last night. Now I feel good about owning a mini because it's as if they're retired/endangered. biggrin.gif

Well, I know not what to make of it, but I don't really care what Apple does. The Nano looks nice though, what with the color display and all. But I won't buy one, as I already have its predecessor. Basically, they probably just thought the Nano is now the better mini, hence the replacement.

Heehee...me too. happy.gif

As much as I would enjoy having a Nano...I wish they'd continue with the mini long enough for me to get a cover for my mini from the local stores. All they have now are stuff for the regular iPods and Nanos.

Yeah, me, too. I wish Apple didn't scrap the mini. I personally think that the nano should have replaced the shuffle. The shuffle can't even be called an iPod. At most, it's a iPod 0.5.

Apple does that with their ipod line. When a new model comes out, they discontinue their old ones.

Did you notice that all the new standard ipods come with color screens? I bought mine 20G ipod in March and it does not have a color screen. Once they introduced the 40G ipod, the 30G ones were scrapped.

It's just the way it goes.

I'm sure there are a limitless number of new mini out there to buy online, but i'd rather get a nano. They seem far superior.

That's for me. I got a 20G and won't need a new one for a few years
