    An iPod is a device used to play music in mp3 format which has now phased out walkmans. mp3's are basically just the songs itself which can be stored on the iPod.

    an mp3 is a type of music file. an ipod is 'hardware' that is capable of playing mp3 files. there are a lot of other mp3 players out there (made by Sony, SanDisk, Creative, even Microsoft, etc.), but Apple's ipod is the trendiest-- and arguably the best.
