A near next competitor to the iPod is Zune. This one of Microsoft pet toys. Still not as unique as iPod Classic but is ok.
Its comes with up to 30 GB Internal Memory. This means that you can store up to 7,500 songs*, 25,000 Pictures*, or 100 hours of video.
It weighs in around 160 grams. Size is 4.4 in. x 2.4 in. x 0.6 in. (h x w x d)
For music you get around 14 hours (wireless off) & up to 13 hours (wireless on) of Battery life. For Videos it comes down to 4 hours and for pictures it also 4 hours.
It comes with a built in FM radio.you can also preset around 30 stations.
A 3 inches display is really good. Plus with a Vertical and Horizontal Orientation. Screen resolution is 320 x 240 pixels.
It only supports wmv format but plays it at 30 frames per second.
It comes with an equalizer with 6 different presets.
For now they are only releasing it in English. The box includes an Earphone, USB Cable and a sleeve.
But even all these features it still depends on you whether you want to buy it or not: Check the video below:
So I will be waiting for Zune v2. It's said to be thinner and better than its predecessors.
