iLounge Debuts the 2008 iPod + iPhone Buyers’ Guide


It’s here! Our annual guide to iPods and their best accessories now includes iPhone, too! Welcome to the 2008 iPod + iPhone Buyers’ Guide!

This year, we’ve completely redesigned the Guide, optimizing it for viewing on PCs, Macs, iPhones and iPod touches. Two versions—a two-page-wide edition, designed for monitors 20” and up, and a one-page-wide edition designed for smaller monitors, iPhones, and iPods—can be downloaded from the links below. Each version contains the same content: a complete guide to the iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV family, 20 exclusive accessory sneak peeks, brief reviews of over 125 top add-ons, and ratings for over 1,500 products. We’ve included shopping tips to help you get the best prices for new and used iPods and accessories, the winners of our Holiday iPod and iPhone nano Concept contests, Best of the Year awards (hint: did you win one?), and much, much more.

Single page, best for small monitors, portable devices (9.4 MB PDF)
Alternate Download Link

Double page, best for 20” and larger monitors (7.4 MB ZIP)
Alternate Download Link

Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later.

As always, the Buyers’ Guide is 100 percent free for iLounge readers, and in PDF format. For additional details, click here to see the full story. And please do your part to share the Book by telling a friend, or hosting it on your filesharing network of choice. Enjoy!

I won a Best if the Year award…and I didn’t even get this lousy t-shirt? ;)

Very good guide this year, iLounge. Seems much more streamlined and has a better overall appearance compared to the previous iteration. Keep up the excellent work!

I am really siced about the Alpine EX-10 iPod/Bluetooth car kit.  I’ve googled it and can only find one vendor listing it with a street date of mid November.  I find no other evidence of its existence outside of the 2008 iLounge Buyer’s Guide and the one vendor.  I’ve contacted Crutchfield and am awaiting a response.  The product doesn’t even show up on
