“The 80GB Zune has undeniable cool factor, given its big screen and built-in WiFi. But rather than trumping the competition, it falls in that gray area between the somewhat ho-hum iPod Classic and the rip-roaring iPod Touch. We applaud Microsoft for trying to make the hardware and software as un-Microsoft (read: user-friendly) as possible, but even this second-gen model has some kinks that need working out. And although we love the wireless sync and recently upgraded song-sharing features, we hope future generations will include more practical WiFi features like a Web browser.” ”

The new Microsoft Zune is 80GB, giving you plenty of space for videos to watch on it’s 3.2″ screen. The large storage capacity and screen do make the Zune larger than the iCompetition, but not so much as to make it unattractive for many users. The Zune Pass is also a new way to get your music, you are essentially renting it as opposed to buying it outright. Drop by Digital Trends to see how well Microsoft managed with this new generation.
