Apple’s iPod nano Will Make Competitors Whimper

"There is no doubt in my mind that the iPod nano is a hit. Sleek sexy and signaling a move from the aging white ID to a more contemporary black this product is well priced and uses the successful iPod interface. For the iPod users ready to get the next big thing in music players and for those just coming into the fold this should be a hit," Rob Enderle writes for Technology Pundits.

Dan Chmielewski writes for the San Jose Mercury News, "… The iPod nano makes even the slender Razr look chunky by comparison… The device will replace Apple's most popular iPod, the mini. It's this kind of clever, even daring, strategy by the folks in Cupertino — killing off their most popular model before the competitors get a chance to develop a knock-off — that has given Apple a dominant share of the digital music player market. Even while seated at the Moscone Center, we could hear the faint yet audible sounds of competitors whimpering."

BUGG'S TAKE

Apple has another winner here. Never one to sit on their laurels, Apple has one again forged ahead in the digital music marketplace and redfeined the standard for others to follow. It's been some years now since Apple revolutionized the music world with the iPod, 5 years on and they're still kicking asses and taking names.

Available in 2 and 4 Gig models, in both white and black (the NEW white).
