a cheap Chinese-made mp3 player , sometimes called an mp4 player or s1mp3 player, that is sometimes made to look like a real iPOD but more often than not doesn't resemble an iPOD. These players are often given arbitrary names and feature no tech support, legible manual, or support for newer file formats, but the basic internal hardware and software is the same for almost every chipod...

They can often be had for a fraction of the price of a similar iPOD, and feature built in FM radio, text reader, video player, voice recorder, picture viewer, and games....
What people don't realize also is that real iPODs aren't made in Buckinham palace or the freakin' Louvre...Apple makes all ipods in china...the only thing you are paying for is Apple's marketing budget.
I paid $45 for a video chiPOD that has a lot more features and is a quarter the price of a real iPOD Nano. Suckers!

A Chinese-manufactured MP3/MP4 player with a case and form factor generally to closely resembling one or more models of Apple's iPod. ChiPods are generally a fraction of the cost of Apple's iPod, have generally equivalent but inferior implementations of iPod functionality, don't accept Apple-proprietary formats, and often include supersets of iPod features like larger screens, additional audio processing features, audio recording, additional data formats, and FM radios. However, chiPods are very rarely connector-compatible with iPods and won't attach to iPod docks, opting to instead use industry-standard interfaces. (Notably, Apple's iPods are also Chinese-made--a chiPod is a player which visually bears some resemblance to an iPod.)
I just got several chiPods today. Some of them look a lot like iPods, they aren't as cool to use, but work fine.

An iPod knockoff or cheap MP3 player that is made in china. mix of words China and iPod. They usually call themselves "mp4 players" though most of them do not have mp4 playing capabilities. Some even call themselves "Mp5 players" even though mp5 doesn't exist yet.
