Can it be? iPods with Wi-Fi wireless connectivity? According to DigiTimes, Apple will be launching new iPods with Wi-Fi in the second half of 2007. They claim that Samsung and Sony will also be following suit, creating similar Wi-Fi compatible products.
Supposedly Apple is hoping that the new Wi-Fi iPod will make it easier and faster for consumers to get content from the online iTunes store. Rather than having to wait to be at your computer, you can instantly download a song directly onto your iPod. Translation- more downloads for Apple equals more mega bucks in the bank.
Although Microsoft's Zune already includes Wi-Fi for song sharing but hasn't been overly popular, we will certainly see an increase in Wi-Fi enabled mp3 players with tons of features in the near future.
