Anyone getting one of these?   It seems MS has made the Ipod Killer. It got great reviews and most are saying its better then any Ipod.

Im seriously considering getting a zune HD, need to replace my aging Ipod Video 5.5 Generation 80GB, I might just use the ipod for external storage and use the zune HD for music that I listen to frequently.  Plus the HD radio feature is kind of intriguing and the 720p video playback.  Although I am sure you will need an external dock to view HD video since the screen is not HD resolution (I don't believe) lol.  Anyway I might get it as a Christmas present this year for myself.

I really want to see how this integrates into live. With Tegra under the hood this could really compete with the ipod touch.

Let's see this in Europe please Microsoft!

ehh I hate Apple :p

The Zune HD is just as sleek as the Ipod but it has OLED screen, Nvidia Tegra processor, HD video out, and HD radio.

Considering the pathetic recent revision to the ipod touch by Apple the Zune outspecs it hands down.

I am a Mac user too but I do appreciate what is under the Zune's hood. If they come out with a phone variant that would be awesome!

iPod Touch vs Zune HD

That says it all. The king of pop showing off the awesomeness that is the Zune screen.

How Apple get away with marketing a 320x240 screen as "widescreen" is bollocks too.
