    Its one small step for zune. One giant frackin' rocket fueled leap for iPod... er... iPhone.

    1 iPhone please Mr Jobs.

    The real competitor to the zune is the iPod (it has large storage), they did not upgrade that, so no problemo for the zune (apart from the fact that it sucks).

    Yes the HD capacity has decreased but I can now 'squirt' my voice around the world.

    Does the Zune even deserve to be felt sorry for? :p

    Zune is $250 for a 30-gig device. iPhone is $600 (plus the cost of 24-months of Cingular) for a 8-gig device. If you're just comparing those two, Zune's a much better deal. The iPhone hasn't changed anything, except maybe image.

    When Apple creates a real video iPod with a screen like the iphone's, or a new iphone that costs less and has lots more memory, then you can feel sorry for Zune.

    Nope. :D

    Zune is the major reason why iPhone was announced today, six months early. Jobs started that keynote by dissing the Zune, then spent the next hour detailing what Apple are doing to combat Microsoft's media strategy. It's a form of FUD, a tactic Redmond will appreciate.

    well the iPhone is the "Zune killer" for sure.

    You really can't compare the price difference... the iPhone is so very much more than a widescreen mp3 player.. Last I checked, the Zune couldn't make a phone call or surf the Internet, etc.

    Let's see... if you buy a Zune ($250) AND a Internet-capable phone/communicator thingy (say a Blackberry 8700 for $180 with a Cingular contract)... um let's seee.... ummm pretty much the same price as buying an iPhone (if you're worried about a $70 price differnce you can't afford one anyway). Ummmmm..... Zune-freakin-killer dude.

    I was wondering why he had mentioned Zune, thinking it was a free plug....but after getting the full keynote, it makes sense now.

    (So glad my contract is up! Hey, Cingular, here I come!)

    Zune was outdated when it came out. The only thing for it was the FM radio, and MS fanboys made it out like that alone could kill the iPod.... :rolleyes:

    I think there's a lot of unfair criticism in regards to the Zune. I had a Zune 2 for a while (it was stolen) and played with a ZuneHD, they're very well thought out devices and the UI is very nice as well. But I like consolidating my devices, so iPhone it is.

    Last I checked Zune users can still access all the music they want for a small monthly fee. Last I checked I still cant do that on my iPhone. In other words, shut up.

    I can't see how the iPhone is going to kill the zune. Both are totally different products. One is an iPod touch wanna be, and the other is a phone. If/when the zune comes out with a phone edition, well then yeah we can talk about it how the iPhone will crush the zune.

    When apple updates the ipod touch, we can have this dialog :)
