    Zune 2.0

    Post by samh004 on Wed Oct 03, 2007 5:12 am

    Because it seems we have both Microsoft and Apple fanboys here, everyone will be interested in this new Zune 2.0, released by Microsoft today.

    The dodgy scroll wheel has been removed on all models and replaced with what looks like a rather intuitive touch pad, allowing you to scroll in any direction. The main model has been increased to 80GB storage to match the iPod classic, while new flash-based models have been introduced at 4GB and 8GB sizes, at the same price points Apple charges for their nano's. The flash-based Zune comes in 4 colours, red, green, black and pink, although surprisingly, their red model isn't a Product (RED) Zune, so no money will be donate to charities from the sale of this cool looking Zune. Brown Zune's are no longer.

    Wired (link) has a hands-on look at the new Zune's.

    The Zune looked decent, always somewhat confusing. Then again I never really sat down with it and used it. Just seen pictures and locked displays in stores. It's probably cool, but I wouldn't know either way.

    Strangely I've never used one, they're never on display anywhere I look, which shows a lot about how Microsoft is trying, but then again wasn't the first Zune a US only item... I wonder when they'll wake up and see the rest of the world. Maybe then they might gain some ground..

    I'd rather have a Zune as opposed to my iPod if I could get my hands on one...

    Yeah the Ipod is more appealing to me.

    Which just shows how much Microsoft cares about market share, if they're only available in the US and you can't find one... They said they sold a million of them, well you'd of thought you'd see them everywhere in that case, hmm...
