iPod becomes a target for Asian copycats
A new gang of competitors to the iPod are set to arrive during this month. Due in part to its success, the iPod will certainly be copycated by other companies, especially the ones in Asia that make this practice their main business.
As described by the financial express, a number of Asian companies are doing this right now. For example, sony is presenting in the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas a portable device that is meant to succeed the PSP, which is capable of playing music and video.
The South Korean Sunsung also has similar plans. Other companies, such as the Chinese Honhai and Humax will be presenting their personal players in the near future.
