The Apple Shuffle has been on the market for less than 6 months (gadgetorama is older than the Shuffle!) but the Shuffle already owns 58% of the Flash player market (we’re nowhere close to 58% ownership of any market!) The NPD group is reporting that the Shuffle’s market share share grew from 43% in February.
At the same time, Apple’s overall share of the MP3 market was 74.8% in March when you factor in hard-drive iPods. And if that’s not enough, iTunes music store market share was above 70% in March, once again according to NPD.
