1st look at the "iPod killr" ...

Via TechCrunch today, I finally caught a glimpse of the Microsoft's iPod killer Zune. What's interesting about this MP3 competitor is that wireless is being built in so in addition to to downloading and playing tunes, you have instant portable social sharing tool.

"The Zune has 802.11 networking built in and you can send a song to your friend for three days or three plays, which ever comes first."

Hmmm... looks good and I like the bigger screen, but my first question is ... will it play Recorded Books downloadable audiobooks? I would think so being that it's a product of the MS shop. So my second question is ... at 30mb, does it beat the price of a video iPod?
