This has to be a shocking news for many people. Sony Walkman players for the first time in 4 long years have managed to outsell Apple iPod’s in terms of number of players sold. Sony, which is a Japan based company, saw its Music Player Market share grow to 43%, which is 0.9% more than Apple’s market share in Japan itself. The sales of Music player’s fell by 13.5% during the month of August thanks to the ongoing recession. This is the 5th straight month when the sales of personal music player have dropped in Japan.
Analysts have predicted that the sales of Apple iPod fell because Apple may release new iPod’s during their Rock n Roll event on September 9th.
