Zune vs. iPod

Microsoft’s Zune is out in the market.  So, can it match up to the iPod?

Below are the pros and cons in determining if the Zune is iPod-worthy.


-Big screen that works in portrait or landscape 
-Built-in FM tuner
-Displays pictures and videos
-Share music wirelessly with other Zune users
-Transfer Xbox content to your Zune


-Not compatible with Macs and Windows 98 / 2000
-Only 30GB is your storage capacity – no other options
-Dull color choices of black, brown, and white
-Does not support iTunes software
-Currently not compatible with Windows Vista although software updates will likely be available in the future

At $249.99 like the iPod, the reviews still point to the iPod as the superior product.  However, the larger screen and built-in FM tuner makes this Zune a potential force if improved upon.
