Microsoft has launched a preview of its Zune music player which is termed as an "iPod killer". They have announced accessories and brief specs on thier site. They’ve also got a Music site to compete with iTunes.

At a first glance its looking good.
Seems there is an option to set customised wallpaper. It has also got FM tuner in it and most of the things that i had wished in an iPod.
There seems to be only one button to control the songs.. but what if i want to skip the track?
Support for WMA is a nice feature and the way Zune transfers the songs will play a key role. Imagine if i can just drag and drop songs from my laptop to my mp3 player.

Its going to be launched during christmas holidays.
I’ll definetely buy it if they can take my iPod back 🙂
