The iPod (or Portable Audio Player) category has been dethroned! For the past two years, Portable Audio Players (well, we called the category MP3 Players two years ago) has been in the top spot of the “12 Gizmos of Christmas”. This year the category drops to #3.
The Geeks are still quite impressed with how this category remains towards the top of people’s wishlists. After all, doesn’t everyone have a portable audio player by now? Possibly, but apparently people want the newest, higher capacity, smaller footprint and slicker looker device.
