Portable Media Players - UK - December 2011
“Some trade sources have noted that whilst sales of MP3 players have dipped over 2010, this has been compensated for by a rise in video player sales. It is likely that, as has been seen with digital music, the proliferation of routes to access digital video and the growing amount of material available will lead to greater interaction from consumers. It is extremely likely in this regard that players capable of processing cloud-based digital content on the go will become more popular over 2012, and more relevant once the ultra-fast 4G mobile network is implemented across UK in approximately 2014/15.”
– Samuel Gee, Technology Analyst
