Report Summary:

iPhone/iPod docking stations have become a staple component of many digital households, demonstrating the appeal of Apple’s portable devices as music playback hubs. But usage and ownership varies widely across the US and Europe. Docking stations are used frequently by 18% of US and UK respondents, but by only a third of this number in Continental Europe. Usage of docking stations by iPhone users tracks some way behind people who use a dedicated iPod. This Bulletin presents the results of a survey of more than 6000 respondents in the US, France, Germany, Italy and the UK.
