So I am looking to get some type of mp3 player for my son this Christmas. He just turned 13 and thinks I am the meanest dad in the world because I won't let him get a cellphone (woohoo me!!!)

I am thinking that I want to get either the Zune or the Touch, so he can listen to music, watch movies/video, and even d/l some books now that Amazon is doing their thing.

I like the price and the storage on the Zune, but the Touch is a lot more flexible/feature-rich. Not only that, the Touch is at least 50 bones more than Zune.

Thoughts?

Microsoft is moving away from the Zune, so I hear. the iPods, of which my family has many, are well made, dependable, and sleek. I am not necessarily an apple fanboy, but the ipod has more street cred.

iPod if you want to lose that meanest dad in the world title. I don't like Apple from principal, but I love my Touch With the new touch's, you don't need a cell phone. If he's somewhere with a wifi connection, he can talk, video chat, and text with the touch. Gen4 needed for the video chat (facetime).
