Dell plans to announce a 15GB hard drive-based MP3 player, dubbed the “Digital Jukebox,” next Thursday, according to IDG. “Apple Computer has received a great deal of critical and commercial praise for its iPod MP3 players, now available for Macintosh and Windows systems,” writes IDG’s Tom Krazit. “Dell is apparently following its usual strategy of letting another company demonstrate a market for a particular product before entering that market itself.”
