Meet Zune

You shouldn't see this

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 comes in 4 basic colors - Chocolate Brown, Black, White and Pink. FYI - Careful ordering in Pink there would be slight delay getting it. Hey forget about it check out this store for Zune covers.

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.

You can play wma, mp3 & aac.

It only supports jpeg format for pictures. FYI - Don't sync with the Zune software, it tends to resize the image download to 640x480 at sync time.

It only supports wmv format but plays it at 30 frames per second.

It comes with an equalizer with 6 different presets.

It has wireless 802.11b/g (11 Mbit/s or 54 Mbit/s) with a range of  up to 30 feet. This wireless feature give you the ability to share from one Zune to another.

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.
