Both of these players have been on the market for over six months now. It is pretty safe to say that you can give a fairly good review on the Apple IPod Nano and the Microsoft Zune HD. Depending on your particular needs either one of these players will work. Both the IPod Nano and the Zune HD have their pros and cons. It basically comes down to which features you prefer. Apple and Microsoft are very reputable manufacturers and both players have been popular in the past.
Let’s start with the Apple IPod Nano. Nano comes in the 8GB or 16GB. It has video recording capabilities but cannot take still pictures. You can take video’s that are suitable for posting online, but falls short of video from a regular camcorder. The lens is an odd place, most of the time you catch your finger in the recording and not your intended object. The IPod Nano comes with the ability to listen to FM radio broadcasts with a cool feature that allows you to pause live radio for up to 15 minutes. This is called Live Pause. You can pick up where you stopped listening or fast forward to catch up.
The Microsoft Zune HD comes in 16GB or 32GB. It is elegant and more colorful than previous Zune players. The Zune has a multi-touch screen that is very crisp and sharp. When the web browser is open you have the use of a virtual keyboard. The Zune HD also has a built in Wi-Fi feature. This is the first media player to have HD FM radio. It allows you to pick up HD radio stations and see the information about the music and upcoming music. You can also tag these songs for later purchase. It is important to remember that this player can only be used with Windows.
