About Ipod Mini 2gb
iPod is the brainstorm of Apple Computer and is a brand name for portable media players. The iPod journey started with Apple's Hardware engineering chief, Jon Rubinstein bringing together a team of engineers to design and engineer the first iPod, in less than a year. It was launched in 2003 as a Mac-compatible product, with 5 GB hard drive that granted the user a 1000 songs library. The iPod mini is a second generation digital audio player launched by Apple. It was unveiled on January 6, 2004. It was available in two different models. Both these models were virtually identical externally, with the only differences being in their storage and battery capacities. The iPod mini made use of touch-sensitive scroll wheel with four mechanical touch buttons beneath the wheel. This wheel was also known as the 'click wheel'. To access any of the four buttons, the user had to physically push the edge of the wheel inward. The iPod mini sported an ultra-thin Compact Flash Microdrive hard drive made by Hitachi. First generation models were available in a 2 GB and 4 GB versions, while second generation models were available in 4 GB and 6 GB versions. The hard drive size was engraved on the case, in order to help the user in distinguishing between both the models. The iPod mini was equipped with a dock connector in order to connect the device to the computer via the USB or FireWire interface. The battery of the device was charged during the connection to the computer. In addition, iPod mini was equipped with a hold switch, a headphone jack, and a remote port for accessories. Similar to its predecessor the iPod mini supported MP3, AAC/M4A, WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless audio formats.
