Tech Gift Guide 2009 – Microsoft Zune HD

iPhone, Zune among toys inspiring techno-lust

Microsoft Zune HD Next>>

($220-$290)

The original Zune was a pretty weak first effort but the follow-up gets things right. Great audio quality, a sleek design and the best looking screen of any portable device combine to outshine the iPod. The inclusion of an HD radio reciever is a nice touch–and the ZunePass subscription is a good way to sample new music risk-free. The app store doesn’t begin to compete with Apple’s but if you’re looking for a handheld device solely for music and video, the Zune HD is actually a stronger choice.
