Zune HD vs. iPod touch

Which do you think is better? Personally I think that the User Interface (UI) of the Zune is better, but that the iPod touch does just about everything else better than the Zune.

The iPod touch is the most useful portable electronic device I have ever owned in my life. I don't think I could imagine my life without it.

For a IPHONE and IPOD TOUCH based community my suspicions tell me that the iPod Touch may win out

Because the Zune sucks.

maybe zune has a better hardware but that's nothing in todays world.

chineese make good hardware for good years but their software is buggy, useless and limited.

microsoft joined them as i don't see a good SDK, a good store, people getting involved.

i guess it takes time, but apple is well ahead and don't see anyone getting close to them.

maybe a chance will have android but not zune..

edit: and by the way, for music listening, movie viewing and document(pdf) reading, chineese do a good enough job, just look up onda vx797hd with a 7" display at less than 100 euro. what do you say about that zune?!

As someone said above, good hardware means nothing these days. It's all about user experience.

iPod Touch + iTunes + iTMS + AppStore = easy, convenient, modern lifestyle.

Zune's screen looks a lot better when you use it in the sun, but iTunes blows "whatever the zune's is called" out of the water! The apps are the biggest deal for me.
But, I do like the look of the Zune HD a bit more. It's one nice lookin player!
