There is basically no difference between the two, except that iPod users can only download media onto their device that are from iTunes, whereas an MP3 user can download media from a number of different sources. IPods tend to have more accessories than MP3s, but the devices are used in the same way, just manufactured by different companies. MP3 devices are made by a number of companies, such as Coby or Sony.
