Ipod Dominates The Mp3 Mp4 Player Market Powered By Docstoc
					?This is an mp3 / mp4 player that music lovers acknowledge the most in the modern
time. US-based Apple, one among the largest producers of computers, notebooks and
computer hardware and software, introduced iPod in 2001 with a single model for the
international music market. Apple kept on introducing new iPods for each generation.
The latest one is the iPod 5G. Apple also came up with two different variants: the iPod
Shuffle (without digital display), the iPod Nano (the smaller version of iPod).
Recently, Apple came up with the new-generation of iPod, the iPhone that integrates
the conventional MP3 and video player with an internet ready mobile phone.

This article compares each iPod by its special features. One of the most popular
model is the iPod 5G that comes with 30 or 80 GB storage capacity. It is not just an
mp3 / mp4 player, you can store, view and share complete music videos, movies,
podcasts, play games, share photos, playback music and videos, connect to a video
output device, and much more. It can play your favorite music for up to 20 hours as
this iPod boasts of higher battery life.

The iPod Nano has many of the same features as the full-size iPod, but with much
lesser storage capacity. It comes in 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB models. It has up to 24
hours of battery life and is comparatively lighter and smaller. It also suffers from
some limitations; the iPod Nano doesn't support voice recording and media storage
via third-party peripherals. iPod Nano is a great mp3 player for people who would just
like to listen to audio files.
  Apple's most-pocket friendly iPod is iPod Shuffle. It offers a host of advantages: it's
affordable for everyone; its sound quality is as good as that of any other iPod; it has
flash memory rather than a hard drive; and it's really portable. However, the
disadvantage is that it doesn't include a screen for steering up to specific songs. It has
a limited storage capacity, 512 MB to maximum 1 GB. So it's good for those who
want to be in fashion, yet can compromise on memory space. But the size of this mp3
player is so small that you can easily clip it to your clothes.

With digital music being in-vogue, many portable jukeboxes hit the market, since
Apple kick-started the music revolution of our time. Other portable MP3 and MP4
players, besides iPod, are available in the entertainment world of mp3 / mp4 players.
There are many Chinese, Korean and Japanese brands manufacturing low cost players
in bulk. These are much cheaper, but have their own set of advantages and
disadvantages. The fact remains that iPods are the most popular among all, and hold
the biggest share of this market. There are enough iPod users in the market and a lot
of new things are getting developed around iPods.

Some people just can't do without their iPods, from jogging time to bed time. It sticks
to their ears. Obviously, the battery drains out of the device. The latest buzz is that
Andrew Schneider, a student from New York University, is exploring a solar-powered
bikini that can charge iPods. Yes, it is true! The bikini will soak up the sun rays thru
photovoltaic film strips. That means, while the iPod user is getting a sun tan, his mp3
/ mp4 player is also getting a charge of 6.5 volts of solar power.

iPod has become a very desired mp3 / mp4 player around the world. iPod player just
seems to be ahead of its competitors. Not just by delivering good quality products, but
also in providing new solutions for eager electronic consumers. Let's just wait what
will be next in the iPod revolution.
