  1. “iPod Killers” everywhere. Sony, Samsung, Matsushita, Rio, iRiver, CREATIVE and the list goes on.

    Music is just as much about looks as it is anything. Britney Spears – need I say more?

    iPods are about looks. They are a sleek, cool, easy-to-use MP3 device at competitive prices. But of course who of these competitors has a complete vertical solution? Sony and that’s it.

    With Sony, they are dreadfully behind Apple’s iTunes store and will probably never catch up – or will when the war is already over.

    Meanwhile, count on these competitors to beat eachother silly for an ever shrinking portion of the market share pie while Apple continues to consume with a complete vertical solution and easy-of-use that no one else has.

  2. I can see where Samsung is going – check out your ezmax post. Load it up with features no will use or need and hype it. Kinda like the PDA era. Remember that? Meanwhile there is yet one device to offer an easier integration story that iTMS/iPod or better DRM.

    Of course Samsung can always just copy Luxpro’s copy of the iPod Shuffle and try to ride the publicity wave.

  3. I totally agree. i think these guys are going to try and bleed each other crazy. the price will be the only competitive advantage they have for now. of well lets all way and see how it plays out
