I saw an ad for the Microsoft Zune recently, and was intrigued by it. I was wondering how Microsoft thinks its going to compete with Ipod's or Creative's digital media player in this arena. I recently did some research into it and realized that its starting at $249. The Zune is going to be 30 gigs. Where is Microsoft going to have any comparative advantage against Apple when the Zune is selling at the exact same price as the 30 gig Ipod? Considering all the troubles Apple had with the Ipod when it first released, I doubt that Microsoft will get it right the first time either. I am not willing to drop the $249 yet, but I did come across a company offering the Zune as a prize. I had to fill out a survey, but if I win the Zune it may have been worth it.
Anybody have any opinions on the Zune?
