Zune HD: $100 Cheaper Than iPod Touch

Whoops! A leak on Amazon's part has just revealed the price of the Zune HD, and things are looking -very- good for Microsoft's new flagship media player. AppleInsider reports that the 32GB Zune HD was listed as selling for only $290, roughly $110 cheaper than the $399 iPod touch. The 16 GB model of the Zune HD also had its price leaked, and at $220 it comes in at $79 cheaper than the equivalent size iPod touch.

So what will this mean for Apple? The HD is at least as desirable a media player as the touch. While it lacks the camera that the touch is expected to pack, it has the ability to output 720p high-def video and play 3D games with its badass internal Nvidia Tegra chip. The touch does have the app store on its side, but both devices have multi-touch capabilities and solid browsers.

On screen size the touch wins again, with its 3.5” display barely edging out the Zune's 3.3” one. However, the Zune HD has an OLED screen, which blows the iPod touch right out of the water. To be honest, these two titans seem differently (but evenly) matched, and it'll be fascinating to see just which one manages to come out ahead. Could the Zune's day in the sun finally be on the horizon, or will the iPod touch win the day once more? Only time will tell.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
