We weren't able to test either the Samsung YP-910GS (20GB, $449.99), ... or the Dell Digital Jukebox (15GB, $249, and 20GB, $329), both of which have gotten high marks from friends and colleagues. But the Apple iPod is the model, and for good reason: Its design is functional and user-friendly, and extras like the built-in alarm clock, games like solitaire and Brick, and a calendar give it a kind of handheld-computer-for- beginners feel. But it's the music that turns first-timers into converts.
I just hope people continue to feel that the iPod is the model in the coming years.
