iPod, meet the Zune

The Zune is Microsoft’s answer to the iPod. The first Zune was released in November 2006. Since its release, Zune has done its best in keeping up with the Apple iPods, but has not yet reached the popularity the iPod has. In saying that, Microsoft has given its portable music player some great features.

Today, there are 6 models of the Zune. Let’s start with the smallest first. The Zune 4 has 4 GB of memory which allows it to hold 1000 songs, 25,000 pictures, and 12 hrs of video. The big difference between the iPod nano and the Zune 4 is the Zune 4 can be wireless, which allows for wireless syncing and have access to the Zune Marketplace. Next is the Zune 8. The Zune 8 has 8 GB of memory which allows it to hold 2000 songs, 25,000 pictures, and 24 hrs or video. The Zune 8 can also use wifi. Next is the Zune 16 which allows up to 16 GB of storage; 4000 songs, 25000 pictures, and 48 hrs of video. After that comes the Zune 80. The Zune 80 allows you to store up to 80 GB of memory. This allows you to have 20000 songs, 25000 pictures, and 250 video hrs. The biggest Zune Microsoft sales is the Zune 120. This mp3 player allows you to store 30000 songs, 25000 pictures, and 375 hrs of video. So far, all of the Zunes we have talked about are able to access wifi connections. They all also have a built in radio. The final Zune we are going to discuss is the Zune HD. The Zune HD is the iPod touch’s biggest competitor. The HD is touch screen, wifi, and can download games, movies, and other cool stuff from the Zune Marketplace. The Zune HD can hold anywhere from 4000 songs – 16000 songs, 25000 pictures, and 22-96 hrs of HD movies.
Until Next time, happy teching!
