It's July (the stated international release for the iPod mini), I woke up eagerly and went to the apple online store, but found no mention of the mini at all. This time there wasn't even a day-before postponement of release like they did on 3/31. This is really irresponsible of Apple - people have been basing their purchases on announcements made since Macworld. The first time they could blame Hitachi... fair enough. I know that demand still outweighs supply, but at least they could begin taking orders, so international customers are at least in the queue for minis.
