The Zune Battery Life: Average

Compared to the Apple iPod, which got a recent battery bump to 14 hours audio and 4 hours video, the Microsoft Zune’s 12 hours audio and 3.5 hours video just seems inadequate. Perhaps it’s the large, bright screen that’s holding back the juice? Or perhaps it’s the WiFi, or the FM receiver? Either way, the Zune having less battery life than the iPod despite having a large body is not going to play well in Sheboygan.
