JupiterResearch: iPod envy

Michael Gartenberg writes at Jupiter Analyst Weblogs about his search to "see if there's something on the market that can do what the iPod does and do it as well." Gartenberg is still looking.

He writes that "even getting one of the ex-Pixo guys to help with the new Samsung flash player didn't seem to help all that much. As we get close to the end of the first quarter in 06, it's still Apple way ahead here."

Gartenberg then goes on to post some quotes from someone at Microsoft, who has come to the acceptance that the iPod is where it's at. Gartenberg concludes with:

As for me, we'll have to wait to see how the Urge service shakes out when it's released and if there's a proper set of devices along with it that are appealing enough to get users to try it out.
