Default Samsung REALLY needs to Step it UP!!

I just saw the video for the Zune HD and DANNNG does it have a smooth and sleek interface.. Now the P3 looks so last year.. Although I am an avid P3 supporter, Zune HD is truly innovative and to compete I REALLLY think Samsung should step it up a notch. A simple upgrade from the p2 is not good enough! The competition is getting so tough!


what do you guys think???

Man,It's awesome !!! But I think it will be way more expensive than the P3 , just like the new Sony ! Apart from that the player rocks . The interface looks so smooth and the accelorometar(I dunno how to spell this) is so fast . It's just great

The player looks great, but the zune software is crap!
If MS allows drag and drop, then this might be a purchase for me, if not, then a no go for me.

The 2 players are of different styles,and they both have advantages and disadvantages.

It will definitely be the most popular Zune yet, by far...should end up being the best mp3 player of 2009. It will probably cost a good deal more than a Samsung P3 as well.

The Zune HD won't support as many audio formats as the P3 or S9 do and will be MTP of course.
We can't say it is better just because it has a smoother interface

From experience I'll tell you that how smooth the UI is doesn't have anything to do with how good the music will sound. Smooth graphics abound this fall as Sony and MS catch up with the Touch, but who thinks they'll all sound amazing? The P3 does an admirable job. The cowon S9 has an accelerometer, OLED screen, plays music and photos and videos and text and radio, and much more. Why did you buy a P3 when you could of had an S9?

Fancy graphic tricks are great for the .05% of your device's life when you show it off to your friends. If they slow down access to your music you'll shut them off or regret them very soon.

You're complaining about the zune software being crap? Emodio was birthed by satan himself!

Even worse, it's ZMTP - incompatible with anything else that is MTP, including WMP. Smooth move, Microsoft...

Seems the Zune HD interface is smoother than P3, see how Samsung react with firmware upgrade.....

Microsoft got a advantage on format... the built-in medio player in every windows and WMA lossless.....

If there is a hardisk Zune HD (with parable sound quality as P3), would get one as supplement of my 8GB P3 for more storage so I can enjoy lossless format.

wait, am I the only person that uses ZMP?
I actually find it really attractive and smooth, although I dont have a zune so I couldn't talk about syncing. And is there no plug in for foobar like there is with the ipod?
But why do people compare the p3 to rivals that cost a good 30-60% more (and thats before epic deals on play). Its like comparing a lotus to a ferrari; Yeh the lotus might go fast and look pretty, but it's nothing compared to the spawn of Enzo, and obviously that reflects in the price

Yeah, Zune looks sweet, but when you start to think about it, no drag n drop, no mac support (UMS etc), less file type support (who the hell uses WMVs anyway?) higher price... and I start to lose my enthusiasm. Still, it does look sweet. Would seriously give the Cowon S9 a run as my 'second choice' -

Of course if they do bring out an affordable high capacity option (120gb +) and it supports FLACs .. well, that could be a different story!

Emodio sucks even more, but unlike MS, Samsung does not force me to use it! Drag and Drop ftw!

For sure, if it was Samsung who was bringing out the HD, I would be 10x more likely to purchase it. For damn sure it would have DNSe....probably HD-DNSe or DNSe 4.0...
