    After much thinking I've decided on 3 possible devices for me to buy now that I can finance ONE of them:

    1) Zune HD: Really a nice device - I demo'd it and the only thing stopping me from getting one is the non-existence of an apps store.

    2) Ipod Touch 3g: Simply an upgrade from my ipod touch 1g... this would have been a for sure buy if it had a camera, but processor bump is a great plus still.

    3) Iphone 3g(not s): I would probably buy without a contract of ebay or craigslist, has a camera and processor is still a bump from my ipod touch 1g. I may get a plan with T-Mobile later.

    Please submit your opinion, Apple fanboy or not.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you need a new phone and can afford the iPhone, then get that. If you don't need a new phone, then get the Zune HD. It looks promising.

    What Stickman said.

    The Zune does look very promising.

    I had to make the same decision....and I went with the iPod Touch 3G....would have loved a zuneHD, but from what I had read the the reviews, most where sayin that the screen performs poorly in sunlight....I didnt need a new phone so that was bye bye to the iphone...so i went out and bought myself a 32gb 3G...soo much quicker than my 1G now all the jailbreak apps actually run without bogging down my system, and VLC4iPhone actually plays AVIs without lagging

    the Zune is more towards the multi media, music, videos, pictures.
    the apps and the internet comes in second hand.
    The ipod is "good" at everything.
    Seeing that you already have an ipod touch, i'd say go with the zune.

    I see you've made your decision, but the iPhone 3G, I believe, only has a 412MHz processor, or the same speed as the 1st gen iPT.
