Ever since the U2 special edition iPod came out, many other artists have been fighting to get their own signature iPod in the works. Can you blame them? The U2 special edition iPod was incredibly popular, and other recording artists could only be so lucky as to have another device bearing their name on the market. Some of the artists at the top of the list for the next signature iPod are Coldplay, Toby Keith, Metallica, and Hootie & the Blowfish.
These all seem to be pretty premium choices, especially since their popularity reaches a wide variety of listeners. Still, who knows how much truth there actually is to these rumors? However, with the example of U2 using their mega-popularity to gain even more popularity from their own signature iPod, it would only make sense that other artists would want to follow suit. I myself am thinking that these would sell really well, especially since fans love to have a little piece of their favorite artists to take around with them. If you are a huge Metallica fan, for example, then who wouldn't want an awesome iPod bearing their name for everyone to see? This gives you the opportunity to take your love of music that much further by displaying it on your iPod.
