    The Zune HD is a wonderful device. It has a beautiful interface (which, IMO is better than iOS), and it's the best alternative to the iPod touch out there in the market. The only thing that is terrible on the Zune HD is it's marketplace.
    But how do you think Microsoft will respond to the new iPod touch 4? The new iPod touch 4 (IMO) just blew everything out of the way in it's category. Do you think that Microsoft will revamp the Zune HD to compete with the brand new touch? Like maybe add more features, have more better apps/games on their sad excuse for a marketplace, or maybe add a camera?

    tl;dr How will Microsoft compete with the new touch?

    I read on Cnet or Engadget that Microsoft is coming out with a new zune HD in early 2011.

    If they only made the screen big like 3.7 AMOLED screen... and i agree the zune UI is really nice.

    If they add a camera, faster processor,a better web browser ( because the zunes browser sucks and is slow),a bigger AMOLED screen, they already have a HD radio, and a higher capacity like 120 or so, and get some apps in there market place...i would be on that sh*t like white on rice!

    I agree, the web browser on the HD is terrible.

    To me the screen is a little too small, the only thing that I dont like about the zune now is the size and weight...i like my stuff to be heavy and feel durable....and the width is too small....i fell like i can crunch it with my hand...other then that i love love love the OS and the OLED screen JUST MAKE IT BIGGER !!!!!!

    The size and weight of the HD is wonderful compared to the touch. It solid and good in your hands (That did not sound right).
    Really though, Microsoft really needs to step up if they want to compete effectively against the touch.
