Alright it is almost September which means new products from apple and zune. I am looking on your opinion on which to buy

Plus for Zune- HD radio, easier interface, OLED screen, possibility of apps including xbl games, interwebz, better quality video, tegra battery, which means ****load of power and HD output.

Plus for 3g- Possibility of camera, which means pictures and maybe video, possibility of microphone which means more apps will work, possibility of OLED screen also, better speaker output and everything else the ipod touch already has.

I have been a Zune lover because of how easy it is to use, and it is much better quality, but i switched to the touch because of the apps and internet. I want to switch back but the 3g looks awesome too. Your thoughts?

Also don't turn this into a goddamn fanboy argument, ok, everyone has opinions.

Tl;dr New zune and ipod touch is coming out, which one should i get?

most of my ipods/ zunes die within a couple months because of getting pushed in pools/ getting run over by cars/ being put in washing machine. but the main thing is the camera, if the ipod gets it, itll be a tough decision, but if it doesn't its an easy decision. Also, if the zune gets xbl games on it ill pretty much automatically get the zune. We'll see in a week

the ipod touch 3G was a huge letdown. No camera/mic or OLED screen. They upgraded the processor and RAM, and that's pretty much it. They didn't even upgrade the battery though, so with the performance upgrades came lower battery life. Yes you heard me correctly; the 2G has better battery life than the 3G.

From a business standpoint, I can see why they gave the nano all the good stuff like camera and mic and didn't do anything with the touch. But the same time, I'm pissed that apple pretty much barely did anything for the "upgrade".

Depending on how the apps work/quality of the apps on the zune, I'm going to have to go with the zune hd on this one.

I'm sure **** like that wont happen if you were to apply your own firmware, like rockbox or something.

That was a one-time accident because of some faulty coding. And it wasn't everyone's, it was a select few people with older ones.

It was actually everyone with older ones, and either way, in my personal experiences I have found iPods to be easier to use, have better features, and overall just work smoother.

Go ahead, tell me my opinion's wrong.

What I meant was that those people with older ones are only a select few of the total market.

And shut up, I didn't say anything about your opinion you conclusion-jumping ass.

These are your words:
tell me my opinion's wrong.

meh...I can understand ease of use and smooth interface...but better features? Ipods have always been criticized for lacking features compared to other mp3 players in the market. For example, the ipod classic had nothing on creative's zen vision M as far as features and overall specs go.

I want to get a Zune HD, but that Zii Egg is looking good... I need something with a lot of memory though.
#26
Well, the Zune HD comes out tomorrow. Decide fast.

And so you know, the Zune does have an App Store feature under "Marketplace" and a recently release promotional video by Microsoft says it will play 3D games (was always likely due to the merging of the Zune Store and the Xbox Live Marketplace).

zune hd imo. the only thing i dont like about the zune is the fact that theres a lack of car adapter kits available (as in none). other than that, love it.

id get an HD but ive got alot of music and hate having to search through it all and pull out only 8 or 16gb worth...

You can buy adapters for any USB device for car charging. The Zune HD is also 32GB and way cheaper than the equivalent iPod.

Yes there is, I have one. There's also plenty of universal ones on the market that plug into the headphone jack.
