The day before the Apple event (2 days ago) Microsoft had an announcement as well, a price drop on Zunes. The price of the Zune has dropped to $199 so instead of buying an iPod Nano with 8GB of memory and a 2″ screen you can get a 30GB Zune with a 3″ screen. I personally would prefer the iPod Nano but I do think that the Zune has one of the most beautiful interfaces I’ve ever seen.

If you want to pick up the Zune for even cheaper you can get a white Zune for about $170 on
