iPod competition ?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Philips new mp3 player

This seems to be targeted as an iPod competitor. I like the black design of the hdd060, but the hdd120 is ugly as hell. The iPod beats it anytime wrt design.

    HDD060 - 1.5GB for $199.99 with only USB 1.1

    The HDD120 is the only real competition, but it's only 20GB which for some isn't enough, and the biggest problem is that they don't work with iTMS.

    By the way, catchy names

    Yeah, it's really cool when someone asks you what you're listening to and you answer: 'It's a Philips hdd120'

    I've seen worse anyway. The screen UIn is quite an iPod knock-off but who can blame them? Does it support AAC?

    It appears to support MP3 and WMA encoding. The Hdd120 supports recording to MP3 as well.

    The iPod sells because it is 'cool' it is a must have product, people follow crowds, so the iPod has no competition. :grumble (obviously the real computer users do research first though!)
