Apple’s diminutive iPod MP3 player will be available at Target stores beginning this week, Apple announced on Wednesday. Target will carry the 10GB model for Mac and Windows.
“We’re thrilled that Target will significantly expand the availability of Apple’s award-winning iPod to even more customers,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s executive vice president of Worldwide Sales and Operations in a statement. “Apple has placed an operable iPod on display in each of Target’s 1,148 stores, so every Target customer can use and listen to an iPod before they buy.”
The 10GB iPod comes with a wired remote, a carrying case, earbud headphones and a PC FireWire adapter in the Windows model. Capable of holding 2,000 songs, the 10GB iPod also features a new touch sensitive scroll wheel.
iPod for Mac requires Mac OS X version 10.1 or Mac OS 9.2, iTunes 2.0.4 and a Macintosh with built-in FireWire port. iPod for Windows requires a PC with built-in FireWire or a Windows-certified FireWire card and Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows XP Home or Professional.
