Digitimes reports that Apple's iPhone Shuffle sales are stagnant in the Taiwan market due to an abundance of gray-market Shuffles as well as recent competition from new models by Sony and Samsung.

While Apple Computer Taiwan still maintains a retail price for the 1GB iPod Shuffle at about NT$3,000 (US$91), prices of gray-market models are about 10% lower and 1GB MP3 players offered by little-known brands sell for only NT$800 only, the sources pointed out.
