Here's a video I found a while ago that I think is rather in-depth. Hope this is what you're looking for.

The WP7 needs a few updates just to catch up with the HD media features.
Seems odd.

For some reason it is not the same experience. Zune hd has the bands pics, bio and ability to widescreen videos.

Nope, there's still work to be done - but I hope it comes faster than the shoddy non-schedule that MS has done with the Z:HD.

The Zune has some more features now than WP7, like smartdj. However if you use the Zune HD next to your WP7 you dont even need it on your WP7. It's what I do. It saves me some batterylife on the phone.

I'm curious: Has there been any indication that Microsoft actually considers WP7's Zune unfinished (or "in active development," to use the appropriate corporate-speak) and intends to at least bring it up to par with the Zune HD (minus the currently-impossible-to-implement HD radio and docking functionality, of course)? Any indication they plan on perhaps surpassing their 18-month-old model and bringing WP7's Zune even greater, as-yet-unseen features? I seem to recall statements before WP7 was released saying the Zune app would be "full featured" and match the functionality of previous Zune players, but I don't know now if those originated from Microsoft or were just more of the "baseless rumors" that stand in for Zune news these days this year...

epithetless, the answer is yes, but I'm too tired to find it right now. Hopefully someone else can cite the place that they said that. And I'll come back later if no.

Thanks for the confirmation, steinburger1109. Whenever you're feeling revitalized, the link would be great.
