The world's original iPod website, iLounge, has released an all-new, free iPod book.

The 'Holiday Buyers' Guide' covers Apple's entire current crop of music players, peripherals and iPod lifestyle information. In excess of 650 products are covered, alongside feature articles and photography.

The digital tome also offers sneak previews of new peripheral products being prepared for release next year.

Jeremy Horwitz, editor-in-chief of iLounge said: "By replacing its biggest iPods over the last two months, Apple has antiquated every iPod book and magazine out there. Our new Holiday Buyers' Guide is the only publication on the planet with ratings of 650 accessories and iPods - including all of the new iPods, just-released accessories, and add-ons for every past iPod since 2001."

The publication also looks at iLounge's 'Best Of 2005 Awards', including Altec Lansing's InMotion iM7 (Speaker of the Year), ProClip's Padded Adjustable Mount (Car Accessory of the Year), Kensington's Stereo Dock (Dock of the Year), and cases from Incase, iSkin, Speck, and Vaja.
