Zune Vs IPod -Who will win the war


Microsoft has official launched Zune a rival product to the already famous iPOD. Ipod revolutionised the way we hear to music. It gave us a sleek and sexy gadget to handle and listen to quality music.


What MS will surely do is to create a marketing BUZZ as they always do in the market, but who will win the war? Well YOU will win...lol..we get better products prolly an upgraded ipod in near future.Afterall competition is healthly for consumers.

I think Zune may ultimately win the war. They are launching their second generation this fall. I can't wait!
