    Apple quoted the iPod 4GB mini as holding 1000 songs. The criteria they base this on is using AAC format at 128kbps for a 4 minute song. Any variation to the length of the song or to the bitrate will mean either more or less songs can be stored.

    And incidentally, a song of the same length, encoded at the same bitrate, gives an almost identical file size whether it be encoded in AAC or mp3.
