You likey? I'm sort of intrigued by the improved Xbox 360 integration and OLED screen. It also does HD video and radio.

I think the Zune HD is a cool looking player with some nice features. I could see it doing well against the iPod touch. I just think they need to do something about that Zune store and software. I checked it out on my wife's laptop once and thought it was a giant POS in comparision to iTunes. They also need regular pricing in the store. I didn't get that Zune or Xbox pricing scheme. It's cool they have a subscription plan though.

From my POV, the Zune kinda looks a bit retro 70's with all those cut angles.

Bit like a late 1970's Delorean.



In the meantime, I just read that iPhone sales worldwide, have doubled from 5%, to 10% of the market.

Thats pretty good given the economic times..

I think that is one of the cool features Devo. You can apparently stream and control all of the songs from your subscription plan on the Zune HD.

"Hello from Seattle" Rolling Eyes

Is that printed on the Zunes now?

I think its a nice piece of design, hopefully the ergonomics will be as good as it looks, I had one of the first Zune's and it was good bit of kit. The software on the PC side let it down though as devo said.

I like the overall design. I'm not sure if I get the screws showing on the back though. I mean, unless they are making it possible to swap the battery out. I don't think that is the case based on the screw heads though. It also looks like they have some LEDs or something on the side volume rocker. I'm not sure what those are about either.

I think that's just textured for grip.

You're probably right. It would be cool to have an external battery indicator like the MacBooks have though. Oh well, I'm buying one if the Xbox 360 integration looks good. I'm so hooked on that console these days.
