Apple’s iPod shuffle was among the 148 winners in this year’s prestigious Industrial Design Excellence Awards (IDEA). It won a gold award in the consumer products category.
Apple’s stock will likely take a hit if upcoming music cell phones prove to be competitors, Barron’s newspaper said. “While some analysts believe Apple might sell 45 million iPods next year, that pales next to the 750 million or more handsets that might be sold.”
iPodStyles has kicked off a summer clearance sale, with discounts ranging from 40% to 60%. All silicone cases, sync/charge accessories, and ShuffleArts are on sale.
