Although the iPod touch receives more recommendations, experts say the Microsoft Zune Hd 16Gb Black is a worthy alternative that’s less expensive — if you’re not already married to iTunes. With a sleek design and 3.3-inch touch… screen, the Zune HD earns numerous accolades for its sexy design. The touch screen is very responsive, and videos and pictures look great on the OLED display. The Zune HD also boasts an integrated FM radio, Wi-Fi capability and HD video output with the optional Zune AV Dock.

Sound quality is comparable to the iPod touch, although the on-screen volume adjustments on the Zune HD annoy some reviewers. Although many experts are impressed with the Zune HD, they say it can’t compete with the iPod touch when it comes to apps, games and web browsing. Microsoft’s mobile browser loads pages slowly, and the Zune HD has far fewer apps.
