I spotted some “side by side photo’s”:http://www.engadget.com/2006/10/01/zune-vs-ipod/ of Apple’s latest 80GB iPod, and Microsoft’s Zune MP3 player.

For me, the decision about which one I’d rather have comes down to this – would I rather have a 5th generation product from Apple, or a 1st generation product from Microsoft?

    And note, thats an 80GB iPod with a Zune next to it. Shave
    .12″ off the iPod to compare it with a 30GB iPod.

    The interesting thing is that the 30GB Zune (same price as the 30GB iPod) is also a fraction heavier (according to Engadget) than the 80GB iPod!

    I’m guessing that’s down to the bigger battery to support to larger screen and wifi…

    Well the 30GB iPod weighs 4.8 ounces with a 2.5-inch color display, and the 80GB weighs 5.5 ounces 2.5-inch color display And the 30GB zune weighs 5.0 ounces with a 3″ bright color LCD So if you want something thinner go with a iPod and if you want something with a bigger screen go with zune….to bad you cant have a bigger screen and have it thinner huh?
