Since, both portable media players are out now. Also the problem of making choice getting difficult, as both has got something new to suit the requirement of individuals. So, why not have a look on comparison chart which I collected from different sources.
iPod Nano also got many new features but I decided not to take that in list because of no networking options!
Let begin with hardware, iPod Touch has got ARM Cortex-A8 833 MHz underclocked to 600MHz for 3rd Generation, where as Zune HD has got ” Tegra ” which includes an 800-MHz ARM CPU, a high-definition video processor, an imaging processor, an audio processor and an ultralow-power GeForce GPU in a single package. Both of them does not have any camera. Also iPod Touch is in 3rd Generation but Zune HD in 1st Generation.
Looking at the comparison chart below :
One can easily make out, as iPod Touch is old thats why it has got so many apps., but thats not the case with Zune HD. Further, Zune HD does not have some basic applications like Calender, Notes, E-mail, but I think these will be available shortly through download. Zune HD definitely wins in hardware and battery backup. Finally, Zune HD is available only in US whereas iPod Touch is available throughout the world !
