Hey, it seems to be a pretty good deal after all. With Wifi to download podcasts and interact with friends, it beats iPod hands down in terms of functionability. And more and more people are getting board by iPod's looks and lack of introduction of the super wide-touch screen during the latest launch, I do anticipate this Zune to sell well.
