Apple Japan aims for 80% market share with iPod shuffle

Apple is looking for its new iPod shuffle to help boost its share of the digital audio player market in Japan to 80 percent from around 50 percent now. Apple Japan vice president Yoshiaki Sakito said Apple has already received more pre-orders for the tiny device in Japan than those placed for the iPod mini. Sakito also said that a Japanese version of Apple’s iTunes Music Store is expected to launch before the end of the year.
