I'm a bit of a Zune Fanboy. More accurately I'm a Zune Pass Fanboy. I think the Current Gen Players have great sound, and do their jobs as Music and Video Players very well. The newest Model, the Zune HD hit the market earlier this week.
The HD's Specs are pretty solid:
- OLED Display
- Multi-Touch Capacitive Touch-Screen
- Nvidia Tegra Processor
- HD Radio Tuner
- 16gb or 32gb or Storage
I intend to get an HD in the near future, I'll give my two cents when that time comes. In the meantime, here's a link to the Engadgets take
The final paragraph I think sums it up nicely:
So let's pretend for a moment that these players are exactly the same in every way except for how you get music on them. In that scenario, we think Microsoft's angle has some real advantages. Of course, these players are different -- you're still sacrificing a lot for that $15 subscription -- and even though the Zune HD is a tremendous media player with a lot of great features, we still don't think it competes 1:1 with a device like the touch. Still, it competes, and for Microsoft and the Zune brand, that's a major leap forward.
