Dell to ship iPod Mini rival next month

Pocket DJ to fly MS' PlaysForSure flag

Dell launched its anticipated iPod Mini challenger, the Pocket DJ 5, yesterday, along with an updated version of its higher-end model in matching livery.

Dell DJ 20 and Pocket DJ 5

The Pocket DJ 5 provides 5GB of storage, measures 8.8 x 5.3 x 1.3cm and weighs 125g. Dell hasn't given much else away: the DJ 5 will cost $199 in the US, and supports Windows Media 10 and MS' 'Plays For Sure' initiative.

So too does the new 20GB DJ 20, which is a thinner version of the older DJ line, decked out in a new, silvery shell. It will retail for $249 and, along with the Pocket DJ, goes on sale in November. ®
