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. ®
