Zune hands-on & review

Oodles of Zune news today, with a couple of galleries emerging courtesy of the pretties over at Engadget and Gizmodo, while the latter also manage to pump out a quick review.  Both praise the Zune's tactility, especially the so-called doubleshot-effect caused by having a slightly rubberised outer coating over a solid inner body.  That same rubberisation led the Gizmodo boys to slip the delectable DAP down their pants, but the least said about that the better. 

Consensus seems to be that the UI is pretty and straightforward to use, the Microsoft Zune Marketplace software is okay although having to buy points which you then use to buy songs seems like an added hurdle that could be done without.
