Guys,
Like a lot of other people, I'm very tempted by the new iPod mini revisions, but would love to see some pics first.

I just got my new iPod Mini 6GB Silver today. Really nice. Light, sleek, etc. I pretty much traded my old iPod 3G 15GB for this one. I am happy because I LOVE the scroll wheel!

Its hard to get a good idea of how the new iPods look from Apple's promotional images. I'm dying to see what they really look like.

Hows the battery life?

Not sure yet, It was about 60% when I got it. I am going to drain it dead and then charge it up all the way. I have had it playing for about an hour and the bar hasn't moved.

I sold my iPod (3G) on eBay. It cost me about $8 more to buy a Mini. I got the mini for $247 shipped, and I sold my 3G for $250 shipped.

Here is my opinion on the new vs old color:
I sold my iPod Mini (blue) b/c I was aware new ones were coming out thanks to MacRumors. I ordered a 6GB blue one. When I opened the box I thought that the new blue was too blue or too extreme and I thought that I regretted buying it. Luckily I had not shipped the other mini off yet. So I placed them side by side (while I erased/restored the iPod1GMini and loaded music onto the iPod2GMini) and after about 5 minutes I began to like the new blue color a lot more.
The battery life is AWESOME......especially compared to the iPod1GMini. I had gotten used to the great battery life of my iPod Photo so the iPod1GMini battery life was really starting to annoy me.
An interesting note:
On the box for the new mini's it states that "like a fine pair of blue jeans, the iPod Mini colors will change over time".....not sure what that means, but it's on the box.

Sort of scary IMO. Do they mean that the color will fade over time? Or do they mean that like a fine brass bodied camera, you will see the tell-tail signs of "fine usage"?

I'm not sure I like that. I wouldn't want my ipod fading over time.

Maybe the new mini is just the old color with some extra blue paint on it that will fade over time and become the same color as the old one :p

I CAN'T wait until mine gets here! I ordered a 4gb silver one last week. I hope it gets here before the end of the week!

I was originally going to buy a 512mb shuffle, but with the price drop and my edu discount, it was only right to get the mini.

Again, CAN'T wait! :)

Gosh the new iPod mini's really are vibrant. I'm a little confused by apple saying they'll fade over time? Weird.

Anyone got any shots of the other colours?

See here (http://forum.nimoll.co.uk/bbBoard.cgi?a=viewthread;fid=37;gtid=1928;gpid=1998#gpid1998) for comparisons of the new/old colour iPod minis.
Personally, I think the green is an imporvement, the blue a step backwards, and the Pink is no better/worse.

The blue is an improvement, but I'd still rather have a darker blue.

Is there any company that can "re-color" aluminium parts? Having your Mac mini colored the same as your iPod mini would be nice too. Heck, a colored PowerMac case would be something too. :D
