Microsoft Zune HD now official

Last month we say various leaks and rumors surrounding the upcoming Zune refresh, but we certainly didn’t expect it to go official so soon. Microsoft has officially unveiled the Zune HD. Here is a quick look at what’s coming:
  • HD Radio - Better reception than your traditional FM. Also brings more details about the song/artist to your fingertips.
  • 3.3″ OLED Capacitive toushscreen, 480 x 272 resolution (16:9)
  • HDTV output in 720p resolution
  • Internet browser + WiFi

    The Zune HD supports Multitouch as rumored before and looks good to tackle most PMP players in the market, but iPod Touch. The App Store is a challenge that Microsoft is yet to crack. Apple enjoys the same software base on the iPhone and the iPod touch, thus bringing the amazing iTunes service for apps to the iPod platform. However this is certainly something that would please Microsoft fans, hope we can see a XBox - Zune someday :)

    Update: While Zune HD does have a Xbox live link with the videos, its no gaming. Hoping to be surprised at the upcoming E3 event.
