The Evolution Of Ipods

The evolution of​ iPods – from their appearance to​ the​ iPod video

The newest and most popular innovation in​ iPod technology is,​ for sure,​ the​ iPod video .​
Still,​ getting to​ this innovative device is​ just the​ result of​ a​ long research through the​ history of​ the​ iPod making .​

The appearance of​ the​ iPod was owed to​ an​ increased marketing request: the​ lack of​ quality of​ the​ digital music players was noticeable to​ the​ interested consumers,​ as​ opposed to​ the​ growing number of​ digital devices,​ such as​ cameras,​ camcorders and organizers .​
Due to​ this fact,​ the​ Apple industries established a​ team of​ qualified engineers in​ order to​ develop the​ mechanism and design of​ the​ soon to​ be first iPod,​ which resulted in​ less than a​ year of​ technical and practical research .​
The launching of​ the​ new and exiting product was held on​ the​ 23rd of​ October 2001 and soon,​ the​ market embraced the​ new product .​
The evolution from the​ first iPod,​ which was revealed almost 5 years ago,​ till the​ iPod video reveals the​ intense and permanent research of​ the​ specialized engineers .​
The next significant step in​ the​ evolution of​ this device was the​ release of​ the​ 2 versions iPod,​ for both Mac and Windows users,​ which highly increased the​ sales and the​ number of​ potential customers .​
Actually,​ the​ iPod sold at​ such a​ high rate,​ that the​ permanent improvement of​ the​ product,​ in​ order to​ maintain the​ leading position on​ the​ market,​ was a​ necessary request (the selling rate recorded over 42 million units since the​ release of​ the​ product) .​

In 2005,​ the​ new and better iPod was revealed,​ when celebrating the​ 4th generation of​ these devices; the​ new model introduced,​ for the​ first time,​ the​ color screen .​
In the​ spring of​ 2006,​ the​ Samsung company announced that they were about to​ provide the​ media processor for a​ new iPod model,​ an​ improved version of​ the​ Apple’s device .​
Soon after,​ the​ 5th generation of​ iPods introduced the​ iPod video,​ meaning it​ has video playback capacities,​ video playing and better organization features .​
The launching was celebrated together with the​ innovative new models of​ iPods: the​ iPod nano,​ with color screen and the​ iPod shuffle,​ which were the​ best sellers of​ 2005 .​

The 5th generation of​ the​ iPod was about to​ reveal many new and exiting features of​ the​ small device,​ all under the​ slogan One more thing.. .​
Basically,​ the​ iPod video or​ the​ video iPod was available on​ the​ market in​ both 30 GB and 60 GB capacity models,​ had ability to​ play both MPEG-4 and H.264and much higher resolution,​ up to​ 480/480 .​
Having a​ 16-bit color screen and being able to​ display all kinds of​ videos on​ a​ TV set,​ the​ new product was a​ market hit since its appearance .​
Regarding the​ design,​ the​ new iPod comes,​ as​ the​ previous iPod (the nano model of​ the​ 4th generation) in​ 2 colors,​ white and black,​ but it​ has a​ multitude of​ applications and improved features: World Clock,​ Stopwatch,​ and Screen Lock applications,​ a​ smaller earphone,​ a​ thin slipcase,​ AC adapter and FireWire cable .​
Regarding the​ dimensions,​ the​ new iPod is​ 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.43 inches for the​ 30 GB version and 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.55 inches for the​ 60 GB version (which,​ in​ the​ case of​ the​ new model,​ are marketed at​ the​ same price) .​
The screen size was modified to​ 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) diagonally,​ 0.5 inches (12.7 mm),​ meaning that the​ video iPod screen is​ larger than the​ previous one .​
Even more,​ the​ product is​ thinner than the​ last model,​ iPod nano,​ and the​ battery life increased from 16 hours to​ 20 hours .​
Still,​ being a​ video device,​ watching movies reduces the​ life of​ the​ battery to​ around 2 to​ 3 hours .​

With an​ exiting and evolving history,​ the​ iPod manages to​ be one of​ the​ most innovative products on​ the​ digital devices` market,​ with millions of​ customers all around the​ world and increasing sells .​
