So Microsoft has officially lowered the price of the Zune, their 30GB media player, by $50. That makes it $199 each, or $50 cheaper than the current gen iPod of the same capacity.
However, I would be willing to wager that even though the Zune has more features, and now has a cheaper price than the iPod, even if Apple weren’t releasing new ones tomorrow, they iPod would still outsell the Zune.
It is a decent player, don’t get me wrong, but I would never buy one again, with the possibility of a Zune 2 or a flash based Zune, I might go to a store and try them out, but my next MP3 player purchase will definitely be from Apple.
