    Umm, huge price difference, and different features.

    Err, which do you think is better, an Audi S4 Convertible, or a Toyota Tundra TRD Limited?

    Personally I have both and you really cant compare them at all.

    As mentioned, these devices are in no way comparable. Yes, they both play music/videos but that's it - both offer different things then the cliche Music/Video combo.

    As for a better MP3, the Nano. You can easily change tracks on the nano in your pocket, and iTunes makes playlist (Genius alone is amazing). Plus it's smaller, and more lightweight.

    I thought the new Zunes were supposed to be going after the touch.

    I think they are comparable, they have very close features, like radio, video, music, all kinds of crap.

    I literally almost just went to Walmart and bought a Zune HD (and I'm a big Microsoft hater) and then I remembered that it is Windows only right? No thanks.

    The only features they have in common are the minimal ones you just listed Radio (Music), and Video. Almost EVERY music player have those things in common. OBVIOUSLY, Microsoft saw a Zune HD different than a Zune (which also did radio,music, and video) - that's why they made it to compete with the iPod touch.

    Zune can go on Websites via, download music/videos/apps, and a touchscreen portable computer.

    The Nano records video and can play 20 or so games.

    If you want a portable computer, obviously Zune would be the choice. If you really are confused on which one to buy, then maybe you should actually focus on what you want (if you just want a PMP or a internet device).

    Um they're completely different devices, the Zune has a touch screen, the iPod nano is the traditional small formfactor mp3 player.

    The poll would make a whole lot more sense if you pitted the iPod touch and the Zune HD together but the nano and zune are vying for different market segments, have completely different design/form factor and the price points are no where close to each other.

    i agree that these two multi media players are to different to compare
    i do think that the zune hd does have one major flaw which is the program only works on pc's. while the itunes works on a pc and on a mac
    both are both good players
    the zune hd has is touchsreen, has a cool interface, great movie quality,
    the ipod nano 5g has a camera, it is thin, great screen for such a small device, a speaker
