Ever since Microsoft released their featured MP3 player, the Zune HD in 2009 it has always been compared to its biggest competitor, the iPod touch. While the two devices are designed differently and use different operating systems, they each offer much of the same functionality and purpose as each other. The primary purpose of both the iPod and the Zune HD is to play music, games and browse the web when you’re out and about. We will compare the iPod vs. Zune HD with four categories: capacity, battery life, screen size and quality, and finally the price.
The Zune HD is available in either 16, 32 or 64 GB flash memory configurations. The iPod Touch can be purchased with either 32 GB or 64 GB of flash memory. This makes both devices tied in the category of storage space. Unless you have a library with millions of songs both the Zune HD and the iPod touch have more than enough storage capacity for your music.
