True, but as online/wireless music becomes more prolific (the theory goes), the hardware itself is no longer a snazzy storage device but simply a means to access stuff that is already out there. Specialization will be less important as long as it has a good connection. We're already seeing this to an extent with the phones that can also stream music, a function which the iPhone itself is assimilating. Not to mention using the web to listen on home computers, e.g. Pandora, Last.fm.
