2. Which is more useful, the YP-P2's stereo Bluetooth transmission, or the Zune's wireless syncing capabilities?
3. Are touch screens really a superior interface, or has the iPhone hype simply created that impression?
4. Just how well does the new Zune handle podcasts?
I guess I'll just have to wait and see. Until then, I'll be studying these videos. Sound off in the TalkBack section if you've already declared a winner.
