Microsoft ‘Launches’ the Zune

Where by “launch” the mean “pre-announce with no estimated ship date or pricing”.

The white and black ones look like rubbery iPod knock-offs. The brown one, though — good god the fugliness just hurts. Who in the world is going to buy that one?

One tech spec I noticed is that while the screen is physically larger than the iPod’s, it offers the same 320 × 240 resolution for video playback.
