Got two similar media players — one, a highly successful device selling hundreds of millions of units in the last half decade; the other, just barely a year or two but with tons of features. Which one will you choose?
There has been much talk about the second generation Microsoft Zune 80 which in almost all aspects trumped the iPod Classic.
Same price ($250), same capacity (80GB), the Zune is slightly bigger (4.3″ x 2.4″ x .5″) than the iPod Classic (4.1″ x 2.4″ x .41″). But, check out the additional features you’d get on the Zune that is definitely absent on the iPod Classic — larger screen, WiFi synching (cool!), FM radio, wireless music sharing, and a free customized art engraving at the back for every unit bought. It’s hard to deny who’s the clear winner here.
Yeah, I’m still an iPod fan but this makes me wanna buy a Zune 80.
