    Yes, BUT the audio quality on an iPod is about the worst of all the digital music players :-(

    ...and nobody cares, just like nobody cared when the iPhone was unable to play continuous music.

    What makes Apple exceptional isn't that their products are the best that you can buy (they're not), but that a lot of people are looking to Apple to shape their expectations. If Apple can't do something, or doesn't do it well, it's not important. If Apple does it, or does it well, it becomes a benchmark to measure other things against.

    This is why I predict beats audio won't sell any phones or tablets at all - because people currently don't care for audio quality on mobile devices, and are still blind for innovations when they don't come from Apple (for instance, the mainstream media didn't care when the first Android phones bumped the resolution frontier in smartphones from 340x480 to 800x480 - but a made a huge fuss when Apple bumped the frontier from 800x480 to 960x640). People will probably only start to care if and when Apple includes high-quality DACs and speakers in their products. And if you remind them that HP was there first, they'll say "yes, and who wanted those phones?"
