Every Christmas the newest contender to knock the iPod off of the throne of MP3 players comes along. This year is no different, and MP3newswire.net has a three part series (here, here, and here) that enumerates all the various devices that could be crowned DAP (that's digital audio player) winner this Christmas.
Looking through those lists I am shocked at the dizzying array of MP3 players are out there. However, I will risk all my weight as a pundit (and I have a lot of it) and say that the iPod will be the top selling MP3 player this Christmas, if not the best selling piece of electronics of the whole season.
Sorry, iPod competitors, I'm sure you all have your strengths but we want iPod!
