AnandTech: Apple’s New iPod – Evolutionary, not Revolutionary

AnandTech has posted a long (15 webpages) and comprehensive review of the iPod. MusicMatch, XPlay and iTunes 4 as well as taking the iPod apart are covered in the review.

“With the original iPod, Apple had a clear winner on their hands with a revolutionary   new approach to portable MP3 players. The new iPod, albeit only an evolutionary   improvement over the old unit, continues to extend Apple’s dominance in this   sector.

For current iPod owners, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to upgrade to   the new iPod, although the small size of the player is definitely tempting.  The functionality of the player remains virtually unchanged, which means you’ll   still probably want to hold on to your expensive investment.”
