Apple to grow music biz

Analyst Steve Lidberg of Pacific Crest Securities says that a flash-memory music player, and new initiatives in 2005, should help . Lidberg writes says that he expects Apple to "introduce a flash-based iPod and wireless accessories and new types of audio content to monetize is customer base," Lidberg said, adding that he expects 2005 to be a "strong year" for Apple to set up new partnerships to bring iTunes to more devices," according to CBSMarketWatch.com. Analyst Shaw Wu of American Technology Research also said that introduction of a lower-cost iPod based on flash-technology could double Apple's opportunities in the digital player market.
