I've been aching to own an ipod, esp. an ipod mini - but I don't live in the US and Apple made the 11th hour announcement that we'll have to wait *another* 3 months just to place orders (actually, the mini is available now as a grey import but it's quite a rip-off at around $350). So now I'm starting to think that maybe I should just get a regular ipod (probably the 20gb). But I've been hearing all this speculation of next generation video-capable ipods being released and wonder if now is a good time to buy this generation of ipod. So what do you guys forecast? Are new ipods a few months away, or more likely a year or more? As for the mini - are there retailers who will ship internationally at a reasonable rate? (I found B&H Photo has internationaly shipping, but it's kind of steep at $40)?
