Zune HD pictures, video of the UI, and a quick review from Gizmo.
Pretty compelling at first glance. I’d love to see some sort of integration with Amazon’s mp3 store, but I suppose they can just offer the same content through Marketplace. (Marketplace already has my visa for XBox content, so it’s not that big a deal, but they need to match the content base.) I’ll bet the games on this will kick ass. Nice to see Microsoft isn’t giving this up without a serious fight, and me thinks they may have a contender here.
The device is tighter and more physically beautiful than the iPod Touch and it’s got a better UI, the main menu’s scrolling so natural through the swipe gestures.
Did Brian Lam really say that?
