Apple way ahead in in US portable media player market

Apple Computer continued to lead the U.S. digital music player market in the second quarter with a 75.6 percent share, according to the NPD Group.

But its hard to tell if Apple will be able to maintain its sizable lead as mobile phone companies continue to put out handsets with built-in music players. A number of analysts have warned that the digital music player market could go the way of the PDA (personal digital assistant), which saw growth drop off once mobile phone companies introduced smart phones, handsets with PDA functionality.

It makes you wonder about other standalone players like Microsoft’s upcoming Zune.
