It may be a Zune of a different color, but underneath it's subtle brown exterior, you get a 30GB storage capacity, a 3 inch screen capable of showing 320 x 240 pixel images, the ability to watch video or look at pictures for up to four hours on a charge, (fourteen hours of music with the WiFi off, or thirteen hours with it on) and the ability to wirelessly share files from one Zune unit to another (subject to the usual copyright restrictions) up to thirty feet away.
You can use the display in portrait or landscape mode, and it plays several formats of both audio and video. The battery can be completely recharged in only three hours for minimum down-time.
A fast USB 2.0 connection can be used for synchronizing your data with what's on your computer, and when you're talking up to 7,500 songs, 25,000 pictures or up to 100 hours of video. Or you can go old-school and listen to the radio with the built-in FM tuner. Check out this latest addition to the portable player market and see what you think.
