Samsung Galaxy Players ready to compete with Apple iPod
20 percent decline in sales of Apple iPod in third quarter
It was not very long when iPod had defeated all other MP3-player challengers by making a sale beyond the imaginations of Zune, the Sony Walkman and iRiver devices. The biggest support for the victory of iPod in this is its 90 percent share in the portable music player market.
However, the bitter fact that can not be denied is that iPod sales have gone down to a great extent due to the loss of interest of the consumers from dedicated music players and even the iPod Touch. As per the closed sources, Apple suffered 20 percent decrease in its sales as compared to the last year. In the third quarter, the company sold around 7.54 million iPods.
With touch screen-based mobile gaming on tablets and phones gaining the attention of the users, Samsung seems to be all set to grab an opportunity in this. Business experts are in also in favor of this decision of the company. It’s keeping in view that the launch of devices such as iPod Touch, iPhone and Android devices were successful to a great extent in slowing down the business of Nintendo and Sony's portable gaming.
