Doug's Mailbag: Defending Zune
After Doug took a jab at Microsoft's media player, readers chimed in with their support for the hardware and software:
I play music on my phone using the Zune player.
Sent from my Windows Phone.
I have a 120 GB Zune and love it. It has around 10,000 songs, pictures and movies. I prefer it over a smartphone 'cause I believe a mobile phone is for making calls -- not hearing music. The space is limited for storage, and a mobile phone has a life of two years in average. A player last longer. Also if you use too much your phone for multimedia purposes, when it comes to make a call, you won't have enough battery for that primary purpose. That's my opinion.
Interesting...I am probably one of the few people in the world who own a Zune. I've never been able to share music wireless with my friends. They all have iPods. Don't really play music on my phone. Need the battery power for apps.
