Zune HD has been one of the most anticipated media player of this year. But is it worth the wait? CNET says yes. The device has a super sharp 3.3 inch capacitive OLED screen covered with pure glass. It also has an elegant body which feels very solid and has an excellent built. As the name suggests Zune HD supports 720p video content, taking viewing experience to a whole new level.
As for the Wi-Fi and web browsing experience here’s what Donald Bell of CNET has to say, “Speaking of Wi-Fi, the Zune’s new Web browser smokes. Not since first using the iPhone have I been this impressed with a mobile Web browser. There’s no branding on the browser, but I was told it was cooked up by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team (makes sense). Page load was snappy, and pinching and reorienting pages work just like the iPhone and iPod Touch.”
Overall an excellent device making it safe enough to say it is a true iPod competitor.
