    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering with your normal everday Ipod, NOT the shuffles/minis etc what generation are they in and is there going to be a newer generation of them this year?

    Why i ask is because what normally happens to me is ill go out and buy something and if i waited a week i couldve got a better version of the same product!

    Any info is appreciated and if you have any links to sites that can "prove" your responses that would be great if not doesnt matter :p :)

    I'd rather invest my money in upgrading my PC than on an Ipod.... No need for such an expensive music player. :p
     
  4. well he is asking about which ipod he should get not if he should get a computer or an ipod

    I bought a phone that's an MP3 player :) Motorola MPx220. I can put up to a 1GB card into it. It also plays videos and since it runs Windows Mobile 2003 I can do just about anything with it that my computer can do. This includes GPS Navigation software. Internet Explorer (I can view full websites, not just mobile sites) It syncs with my Outlook mailbox, calendar and contacts. It's a 1.3MP camera and a video cam. I have a Gameboy, NES and a SNES emulator on it. I can even use a dialup service to connect to the internet to get faster speeds than the WAP service gives me.

    you are mistaken my friend, only the ipod photo and the ipod click wheel are g4, the ipod mini has 2 generations the old one, and the one that comes in 4/6 (2nd generation.
     
  10. oh i thought the mini was counted as a g4

    not sure if you'd want to.... but i kinda suggest looking at alternatives to iPod's. you can seriously get a lot more features and everything for the same amount of money, or less. there's always the GMini 400 from Archos, or one of the portable multimedia players from iRiver. iPods just really aren't all that in my mind. ya, they're smooth, but that's all they seem to have going for them.

    wrong once again, the only reason no one reffered to the minis with generation is because there was only one, now that there are two it can be used, but i bet no one will since they look the same, except for the new color
