The most recent Lounge Poll, “What was the most important iPod & iTunes event of 2005?”, is now closed.

Over 6,400 votes were cast in the poll, which covered 7 key events and included a “something else” category. By far, iLounge readers chose the October release of iPod (with video) and the addition of paid video content to iTunes. A 51% majority picked this option over all others, which was 27% higher than the number two option, the September release of iPod nano (24%).

Complete results are available at the Lounge Poll archives. Our new poll, “What iPod accessory are you most hoping to receive for the holidays?”, is now open. You can find it on the left column below Ask iLounge - please cast your vote!

I forgot to vote but I think the nano was the most important thing in 2005 due to the fact that all flash players will now be compared to the nano even more so them Hd daps being compared to the ipod.

No doubt, the Nano is very impressive, but when we talk about the single MOST IMPORTANT event it has to be the release of the video iPod.

Regardless of model, form factor or size other mp3 players are going to be compared to iPods for a long time to come. Plus apple has already proven they can shrink things and besides shrinkage is something that always comes with any product over time.  Now video… that opens a whole new world of possibilities for both us as consumers and apple.

Hey… I can’t vote for the new poll.  I’m already seeing the results… What’s up with that?

The most important event of the year was not the video compatible iPod, but rather the selling of video via iTunes. It opens up a brand new market with countless possibilities. Next would have been the nano for it’s sheer size, and that every flash and iPod mini-esque product out there with limited space will be compared to it.
