It is mid-October, and you know what that means! MP3newswire starts compiling a list of iPod killers for this Christmas season (we covered last year's roundup, though the iPod was the best selling player last year, and it wasn't even wounded). You have to love a round up of potential iPod killers that starts with, I'm paraphrasing, 'We have been compiling this list for the last 2 years and while the 149 devices we covered were trounced by the iPod, this year we think things are going to be different!'

They point to the Zune and Sandisk's offerings as being strong challengers, but also admit that even if the iPod does lose some market dominance, the MP3 player market will continue to expand which means that Apple will sell more and more of those little devices we all love so much.

So, who's asking Santa for a Zune this Christmas?
