Apple is close to finishing up work on the next revision of its iPod mini, Think Secret sources reveal. Also currently in development is Apple’s fifth-generation iPod.

The next iPod mini, code-named Q22B and referred to as Osiris inside Apple, will sport a higher capacity hard drive, very likely 5GB. Sources speculate that Apple will tap Seagate for the part, abandoning current iPod mini drive supplier Hitatchi for the time being. Hitatchi’s one-inch hard drive currently tops out at 4GB, although 8GB and 10GB versions are due for release later this year and may very well find their way into a future iPod mini.

Take a stand on DRM! Don’t buy Ipod!

Get a real MP3 player …

bah, DRM is moot with an iPod if you choose it to be…

i’d never buy a track online, but if i did, i’d prefer it to be ACC then WMA…that’s for sure.

4GB miniSD-compatible portable multimedia players/recorders would be sweet. Only up to 1GB miniSD on sale here so far.
