iPod nano already a holiday season hit
This news is certainly not unexpected. Apple iPod nano has already been unofficially declared a holiday hit in the United States. This tiny digital music player was among the top-selling electronic items on Amazon.com on Friday. In fact, some models of this music player were sold out on a top retailer’s Web site as many consumers preferred to buy one in advance avoiding the last minute rush on these online stores.
Apple’s black iPod nano was in fact the sixth best-selling electronic gadget on Amazon.com’s list of most popular items. Another version (white in color) was No. 10 on the list. Another online retailing giant Best Buy had sold out both the white and black versions of the 4-gigabyte nano priced at $249.99.
Apple did not comment on these high sales figures of their music players. The company has worked hard on ensuring continues and stable supplies of their iPod players in the market. The company recently unveiled that they have sold more than 28 million iPods since they were introduced in 2001.
Apple in fact has about 75 percent of the worldwide market for digital music players, according to market research firm NPD Group.
