On average US digital music player users carry 375 songs on their digital music players, new research reveals.
Solutions Research Group asked 1,062 US digital music users about how they use their players.
Apple is clearly the leading brand with 53 per cent of all digital music players used by the sample group. Sony and RCA tied in second place with 9 per cent share each.
Researchers found that 50 per cent of the sample group carried under 100 songs, with iPod owners hosting an average of 504 songs on their player.
There are some interesting conclusions that can be made here. Apple is definitely keeping a close eye on how people use their iPods and other music players.
Sure us geeks scoff at the ROKRs 100 song limit but it half the people only carry 100 songs then it is not an issue and the iPod shuffle is popular with only 500/1000 songs. And with podpeople carrying 500 songs on average then the iPod nano (500/1000 songs) make lots of sense. A iPod carrying 5,000/15,000 songs is more for carrying everything and the digital kitchen sink but then I know a few people with a couple hundred CDs in their collection and an iPod makes sense there.
I have 1509 songs/audiobooks on my iPod, How about you how many songs do you have on your iPod?
