Default Not the Only Wi-Fi in Town

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/11/20/CNET.TMP

"Microsoft's Zune is generating buzz as the first mass-marketed Wi-Fi-enabled MP3 player, but it isn't the only -- nor the first -- portable media gadget to go wireless. Other lesser-known Wi-Fi-enabled portables can do something the Zune can't do (yet)."

 

We have all heard the buzz: Welcome to the Social. I was excited as anyone about Zune's wireless capabilities. Notice I said "was". I'm extremely disappointed with the crippled capabilities in this first wave. I am still excited about the potential. I like to leave a DMP in my car. I want to be able to pull into my driveway and sync my device without dragging it into the house and plugging into my PC. (Is that so much to ask?) Contrary to all the press, however, the Zune is not boldly going where no DMP has gone before. Drowned out by the Zune’s wireless buzz are a number of lesser-known DMPs with Wi-Fi built in, already doing some of what the Zune aspires to. Cnet gives a nice rundown of Wi-Fi enabled devices, their benefits, and drawbacks. What is the most important wireless for you?
