Yup… Zune killed iPod
Just kidding. I have been watching as someone “live blogs” about the new iPod phone with pictures.
If anyone thought Zune was going to win this one–well, perhaps they are smoking the same reality altering stuff my friends at A Liberal Dose smoke.
One question that remains at this moment is: at what price. My uninformed theory is that it will be the same pricepoints that all the other iPods have had. $349 is perhaps the high end price, but maybe $399.
Would you be willing to pay $500 or more for this? Or more specifically, could you?
The price is going to be more like $549 and yes I would (and could) pay it.
It makes sense to purchase an item that substitutes other items you use (I have a 60GB Video iPod, a Treo 650 and a RAZR). For someone with limited purse or portfolio size, the last thing you want is to carry anymore stuff with you than you have to.
