Default CNet Compares Zune HD and iPod Touch, Spec by Spec

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-12519_7-10356047-49.html' target='_blank'>http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-12519_...0356047-49.html</a><br /><br /></div><p>"<em>Certainly, two of the most exciting releases of the past couple weeks are the new iPod Touch and the Zune HD. Now, if you're curious how the two devices compare with one another, you could always read the deluge of articles available on CNET and around the Web, but we can certainly see how that might be a bit overwhelming. Soon enough, we'll pit the two players head-to-head in a knock-down, drag-out brawl (aka Prizefight). In the meantime, we've created a purely technical spec-to-spec comparison chart to tide you over.</em>"</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1253328081.usr495.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>As you can clearly see in the diagram above, the Zune HD is not, in fact, Apple's iPod Touch. For more information, like device dimensions, battery life, and supported video formats, check out CNet's article. It'll make your next iPod vs Zune debate that much livlier.</p>

I really wish the screen size was as big as the iPod touch. Not to mention, I wish they had a 64GB version. I also hope that an app store is in the works. It would be great if the apps that work on the Zune platform will also work on the Windows Mobile 7 platform.

Nice to haves would be:
  1. Line-in recording,
  2. HD (720p) video AND still camera,
  3. GPS,
  4. 802.11 n,
  5. more codec or more auto format conversion support (i.e. avi, flac)

I did not realize that it did nt handle Bluetooth...

The only other rumor I was hoping to be true was Microsoft Reader. It would have been neat to move my library over to it
