This video really shows off how fast and fluid the user interface on the Zune is. This is really impressive stuff. There are other videos <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4c928gG5vE" target="_blank">here</a> (check out the amazing off-axis viewing angle and brightness) and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cMi_Qp7eb4" target="_blank">here</a> (showing the HD video out, though unfortunately the camera never quite gets into focus).</p>
Very nice. The zoom animation between 1:52 and 1:55 is a little nasty, though.
True. I expect though that the Zune team will follow the same pattern as previous devices - when you dock the device for the first time, it will download a new ROM image...and that means the Zune team can keep improving performance up until the Zune is officially launched. Pretty slick!
