Until any of these devices get a 1 ghz processor that can actually run some type of software like live or steinberg..... meh
And i have a touch and a Zune. Also has anyone put a ssd 60gb in any of the older zunes? I know the seek times are insane and the would help also no heat and greener drive should mean longer battery life.

Still, not a bad looking piece of hardware. Too bad it doesn't work easily with OS X or Linux.
I was thinking the same thing regarding the new Touch; these two will probably be the heavy hitters later this year. I think the Sony flavor will be a popular niche product while the Touch and the ZHD sell like crazy-
Damn...I was all ready to latch onto the new Sony high-capacity DAP when it comes stateside, but now I might have to hold off until i get more hard numbers on this...I will say I'm a bit disappointed that the ZuneHD is going the way of the iTouch i.e. all touch and no tactile controls. That is one plus that is still holding me in favor of the Sony X player.
The Touch does have a volume control, outside of the touchscreen, and when you use Touch-friendly phones (ADDIEM, NE-7M, etc.), the mic/clicker works as an external control. Agree though, nice to have more external controls, but there are workarounds for the Touch. Not sure though if ZuneHD will have any workaround options or not. If none (but touchscreen), that is a major drawback for pocket/blind use.
