After six iterations and a number of other best-selling models evolving from it, Apple’s franchise digital audio player marks its 6th year in the market.
It’s quite amazing if you look back at the Ipod’s humble beginnings and how the entire iPod line has grown from that single ground-breaking portable media player back then. From packing a measly 5 GB of storage coupled with a 2-inch monochrome backlit LCD to a now massive 160 GB of music and video with a bright and vibrant 2.5-inch colored LCD, every year seems to usher in new surprises for this every changing device. With the development of such unique and popular lines such as the Shuffle, Nano and the latest of them all, the Touch, Apple is surely poised in making its reign in the portable multimedia device arena untouchable.
I can’t even imagine what Steve will think of next especially when the iPod hits its first 10 years in the business.
