Jason Chen of Gizmodo recently came up with a list of features the Zune Phone needs to beat the iPhone, and we’ve narrowed that list down to just five. Don’t agree with our choices? Leave us a comment with your picks.

5. Wi-Fi syncing and downloading

Let’s use the Zune’s Wi-Fi to grab songs on the go and to sync up with the PC when you’re in range

4. 3G syncing and downloading

How about being able to access any song from the Zune store wherever you are? Now this would be a killer app.

3. Touchscreen

This probably isn’t going to happen, but if you’re going to compete with the iPhone’s fancy multi-touch system, you’re going to need to come up with something similar. It’s either that or have a phone with loads of buttons

2. Open application interface

Let us install anything we want on the phone. Apple’s strict iPhone policy really irks power users like us who know what we’re doing

1. Not carrier-locked

Cingular’s going to make a killing on the iPhone, but we’d like to see the Zune Phone be open to all four
