Gizmodo: The Zune HD Is Tight And Beautiful!May 28th, 2009 | By James Lewin | Category: Digital Music, iPods & Portable Media Players
We may have been unimpressed by the Zune HD, calling it “two years behind Appleâ€™s iPhone/iPod touch platform” – but Gizmodo says that they would take one in a heartbeat:
The device is tighter and more physically beautiful than the iPod Touch and it’s got a better UI, the main menu’s scrolling so natural through the swipe gestures. There’s a little note on the side, under the volume toggleâ€””Hello from Seattle.” The power button is up top. The home button is nice and prominent, a bar rather than a round button on the Touch. It’s smaller. And the accelerometer is more swift in responding to repositioning; images rotate very fast.

Do you think third time’s the charm for the Zune? Could the Zune HD be a contender?
