Despite the imminent appearance of Apple’s next-generation of iPods in the week ahead, the company’s existing products continue to sell strongly, dominating Amazon’s Bestsellers in the MP3 players and accessories category.

Leading the pack is the 8GB iPod touch, currently available at a $15 discount from the online retailer. The 16GB model sits in second place, available at a $25 discount today.

Rumour-mongers predicting that Apple will withdraw its iPod classic range may want to consider the third place iPod on Amazon’s best-selling list – the venerable iPod classic. Though, some sources think the Classic will live on and add a camera.

A quick scan through Amazon’s top twenty list reveals Apple iPods in nine of the top twenty slots. iPod-related accessories account for five more slots.

In order of preference, the main iPod contenders are:
SanDisk Sansa Fuze 4 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

Zune HD 32 GB Video MP3 Player (Platinum)

Archos 7 160 GB Internet Media Tablet

SanDisk Sansa Fuze 8 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

It will be interesting to see what impact Apple’s new products have on Amazon’s best-sellers list when they are revealed this week.
