Default The Amazingly Fluid Speed of the Zune HD

<p><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="600" height="360" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/0_WPdg6zUeE&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/0_WPdg6zUeE&amp;ap=%26fmt=18"></embed></object></p><p>One word: wow! This video really shows off how fast and fluid the user interface on the Zune is. This is really impressive stuff.&nbsp;There are other videos <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4c928gG5vE" target="_blank">here</a>&nbsp;(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.

Indeed very nice. Why, again, is WM not using this platform?

I'm not convinced the twist UI maps so intuitively to touch, but I guess time will tell.

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!
