Death of iPod Predicted

The once very popular iPod is dead! That was what an article says about the device by Arik Hesseldahl of the Business Week. The iPod's failure to get cheaper and revolutionize with the integration of other devices like a mic and a camera seems to be the major cause of its cardiac arrest. Based on Apple's own inside information, the evidence of the iPod's decline came July 21, when Apple disclosed its first quarterly decline in iPods sold. In the three months ended in June, Apple (AAPL) sold 10.2 million iPods, versus 11 million a year earlier.

But would the death of the iPod be really imminent? A typical iPod nowadays has at least 160 Gigabytes of memory and holds around 15,000 songs, movies and even more. It was a host of digital materials. But it seems the need for todays users should go beyond music, movie and file storage.

Studies sees that compared to the iPod a flash disk is a lot cheaper and new models of flash drives are innovating as well and may even look very similar to the iPod classic.

Well, Apple still says that the iPod's life will go way beyond and will extend for more years but the question is what innovations will make that happen.

For now, the iPod is dead due to cardiac arrest and inability to at least innovate.
