When will this thing ever be available to buy? Seems like they've been working forever on it. I have thought about getting the X-Fi2 as an upgrade to my Zen, but am holding out to check out the Zii, whenever it is finished, but who knows when that is going to be??

I guess judging by the other thread in the Zii forum, chances of a consumer version being released are slim to none.

You can buy one buy signing up as a developer. $399 last I checked, but that gets you a 32gb Egg with an SD slot that will hold another 32gb of memory. The Zii Egg has WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, G-Sensor, two cameras, and fits in any current iPhone case.

So you can actually buy a fully functioning model by pretending to be a developer? Would you say its a worthy Zune HD competitor?

The Zii is getting fleshed out more and more as time goes buy, although time runs slow at ZiiLabs. Right now the Zii running Plaszma includes
Web Browser
Calculator (basic)
Calendar (decent)
Clock/world clock, with alarm feature.
And a camera app.

It's a bit buggy though, as like was said before, it is a developer's model.

I like the playlist feature. I really missed it jumping from a Zune to the Zii.

So can anybody give a real thumbs up to the currently available Zii as a good music device? Is music playback and audio quality similar to that of the Zen X-Fi2? And how does the web browser compare to the Zune HD?

Can someone please get into contact with me via PM and send me the new firmware? I bought mine off eBay and can't get the new firmware updates? This is a plea pretty much. I really want to test out the new features.
