16 GB iPod Nano sells for $180. 16 GB Zune HD sells for $180 on Amazon (orig. $200).
Despite being an Apple fanboy and the owner of several iPods, I think it would be a no-brainer to get the Zune. Any thoughts?
MS has released a sync software for Macs. It's not the whole Zune Application (they says they're thinking about porting that totally over) but I hear it's good enough to get the job done on a Mac. Frankly, I use a MBP, I have an iPhone and a Zune HD. I wish i could only use the Zune software for both phone/Zune and get rid of iTunes for good. It's the worst app ever!
Due to how underpowered the Zune HD hardware is compared to the minimums for Windows Phone, plus the point it doesn't have the required buttons, if Microsoft does shift to WP7 on the next Zune, we won't see an update path sadly. Still, a ZuneHD is a great device if you want to do subscription music, but also just generally in UI and music experience in my opinion.
