Still remember the iPod Mini?

If you’ve been a long-time Apple fan, I am sure you still remember the iPod Mini. This was way back nine years ago when Apple was just starting to enter the music player market and iTunes was just introduced to Windows.

Apple’s iTunes used to be exclusive for Mac OS and then later on introduced to Windows users (2003). During the announcement of the iPod Mini, it was already available for Windows users thereby expanding Apple’s potential market reach.

The iPod Mini was supposed to be a smaller, lighter and more affordable version of the classic iPod (back in the days, a 30GB iPod would sell over Php30k a pop). The iPod Mini had smaller storage and uses a microdrive (CompactFlash II) in 4GB and 6GB sizes.

The one we found here just recently is an old 4GB silver iPod Mini and it’s actually still in good working condition.

This device is almost 9 years old already and the microdrive survived all these years. Anybody out there has an old, but still working, Apple iPod?

    iPod mini ? Nokia 3310, hahaha I guess I can’t compare this 2 they are diffirent. Music Player and a Phone. One thing I know for sure its durability is incomparable. We still have 3310 here and its working still but we mainly use it for eloading business. I don’t know of how many years this device could last. As far a I remember every electronic devices and appliances are only good for the first for the first 8 years. Example, if you have a refrigerator you can only save money and energy within the 8 yers. After that it will turned old and consume too much electricity. The next option is to buy and dispose the old one. Guess what? This devices iPod Mini and Nokia 3310 changed the tragic end, for this I can say, “It made for humans” — ? Kwentology.com my blog ^.^

  22. My coworker sold his iPod mini 6GB to me in 2009 (it was also given to him by her aunt from US), til I could still use it and actually selling it to my friend after I bought an iPod classic 80GB from my new coworker, it’s really tough, definitely worth every you’ll spend on it.
