The iPod has long dominated the market. The first iPod was launched on 23rd October, 2001 in but it was not till the second or third generation that the iPod started dominating. It is now in its sixth generation and still dominating.

The iPod may still be dominating but its dominance is slowly coming to an end. The MP3 player ( market is hotting up. A lot of new entrants over the past two years and a lot of new updates to other players.

Right now, you have a wide variety of MP3 Players in the market. They include the SanDisk, Samsung, Microsoft Zune, Archos, Cowon, Creative Zen. That is a lot of players if you tell me.
