This week at iLounge: It turned into sports and fitness week on iLounge with the major launch of the Nike+iPod Sport Kit and Nike+ shoes and apparel, as well as the release of Speck's new Active Sport Armband and iSkin's DuoBand Dual Layer Armband and Protector. Our First Look at the Nike+iPod kit has extensive details on nearly every aspect of the running solution, from what's in the box to synchronizing with the Nikeplus.com website after your run. We also get our hands on the Hitch USB transfer device, which allows users to copy music and video from one iPod to another, without using a computer.
In iPod and iTunes news this week, speculation mounts that the "true" video iPod will be delayed until 2007, while other reports mention possible aluminum or magnesium enclosures for the next generation iPod nano. Plus, Delta Entertainment announced a collection of DVD titles that come with an extra iPod video-ready disc; iPod FM transmitters are set to become legal in the UK this Fall; and the digital music market and podcasting see strong growth.
