Walt Mossberg, columnist for The Wall Street Journal, has written an article today largely praising Apple’s new iPod Mini. The smaller iPod is due to hit store shelves next week. Mossberg finds the price a bit high and the lack of accessories disappointing, but overall, loves the new digital music player. “The iPod Mini is a gorgeous device that displays Apple’s famous touch for people-pleasing design. At only half an inch thick, and about the length and width of a business card, it feels great in the hand and slips into even a small pocket or purse,” writes Mossberg. “It is the first iPod that naturally belongs on an armband for exercising, and Apple will sell such a band as an option.”
