July 18 - 15:25 ETÂ*Â*In a research note sent to clients today, Needham & Co. analyst Charlie Wolf said Apple's iPod for Windows represents a US$1 billion opportunity. That figure is based on IDC estimates for the portable audio player market in 2003, assuming that Apple is able to capture about 20 percent of the market. "The moment of truth will come in the Christmas selling season. If portable music players continue as one of the few hot markets in the consumer electronics industry, Apple could have a huge winner on its hands," Wolf wrote.
