Default Zune HD or iPod Touch 3G

Which do you want?

I'm personally leaning toward the Zune HD because I'm getting tired of the same UI on the iPhone/iPod Touch. It isn't bad but it's been 3 years and I think it's time for a update.

I have an iPhone 3GS and love it, so my vote goes for the iPod touch, I just really like their design and OS. Though the Zune HD seems quite nice too...

Theres a reason why they've kept the same UI on the touch for 3 years - its the BEST. The competition can't even get close to it and I also just like all ipods in general as they seem compatible in all the stereos and cars which I use.

That's true with all mp3 Players, as, all stereos play mp3's.

Stereos yes, but still not all of them are 100% compatible, for example on mine if I use a sony mp3 then the stereo will not display the name of the songs properly - it just puts down random numbers or letters so I have to change the song by using the mp3 player.
Also with cars they only do ipod connections, they dont do any other makes, however there is an option for a usb connection but again, thats not 100% compatible, it doesnt write the names of the songs.

LOL, that is more like an MP1!

Now, iphone, despite it being the devil, definitely has a serious step above zuny. Zuny has radio, but iphon had intyernet and is a damn phone! zuny does not have that at all.

The ipod touch has the internet, only if you have a wireless connection.

The iPod Touch 3G is the next generation iPod Touch which is rumored to be released next month. I'm NOT talking about the iPhone 3G or 3Gz or any phone for that matter.

Why not? ipod is what inspired steve jobs to make iphone; they are practically brothers except one is dedicated to comm , the other for music/vid/pic files.

One of these days, hand helds will become so sophisitcated that they will become hand held super computers that do it all. I just hope that the IPs and cell providors do not gouge us.

I have a zune 8gb and i love it. I would get the zune hd it has better features and better prices. I know some people say you cant get apps but the majority of apps that i seen are crap. plus you get free hd radio, you tag song and download them to your zune plus you share song with other zune user. I vote zune hd

itunes converts music to mpeg4 making it unfriendly to some radios and players, and itunes doesnt update my ipod anymore. i went with zune hd the only reason i have and ipod it because i traded a broken video game for it.

If there is indeed going to be a iPod touch 3G I wonder how much you have to pay for it per month? But I guess it still wont be much, it could just be for the people who want a GPS system that works everywhere.
Its true that most of the apps are crap but there are a few gems among them - Crash Bandicoot is great fun. There is also an app for a musical instrument tuner which works great and im sure there must be one for HD radio.
