While Apple is still to officially announce UK pricing for iPod mini, music retailer HMV is already advertising them on its Web site.

According to HMV the iPod mini will go on sale for £199 from August 1, although Apple has said the device will go on sale worldwide in July.

UK consumers had hoped Apple would reconsider the price of the iPod mini, which is significantly higher in the UK than the US where it retails at $249 – equivalent to £135 at today's exchange rate.

At the announcement of the iPod mini in January Apple gave the UK price as £199, but later suggested it would re-evaluate, following negative publicity.
