Wired covers Zune

This article in wired states

 

When it launches next month, the Zune will cost $250 for 30 GB — just like the equivalent iPod. But the Zune also has Wi-Fi for wirelessly trading songs; a larger, 3-inch screen (good for widescreen movies); and will connect to Microsoft’s Zune Marketplace music service, which will sell songs at 99 cents each and offer a $15 a month subscription plan.

The Zune will definitely have an impact. That’s guaranteed by Microsoft’s clout, and is why music labels, movie studios and accessory makers are jumping on the Zune bandwagon.

But although the Zune looks good on paper, it’s not going to kill the iPod because of three things:

1. It’s not cool and never will be.

The iPod is streets ahead in the things that really matter: ease of use, aesthetics and — here’s the tough one — cool. The Zune is not cool. You can tell that at a glance. Take the choice of colors. It’ll come in black, white and brown.

I think this article is putting the cart before the horse, nobody has been able ot get their hands on a new Zune and make a good evaluation, it seems ot be a little too early to pass jugement on Msft’s first entry into this market.
