Zune HD Video!

Hi. As they say on twitter, I’m “the guy” with a Zune. Well, one of them anyway. Microsoft has recently officially announced the release of a new Zune this Fall. The Zune HD! Some of Features of the new Zune include:

  1. a Touch Screen with multi-touch navigation. This is a 3.3-inch screen and has a vivid 16:9 OLED display (480×272 resolution)
  2. Integrated HD Radio receiver: Tune into all your favorite stations with crystal-clear reception. Access a variety of HD Radio stations at no additional cost. Plus, tag the songs you like for later purchase.
  3. HD Video out:  720p HD movies, TV shows and videos in high definition on your HDTV through the Zune HD & AV Dock (sold separately). Or take them with you for premium entertainment on the go.
  4. Built-in Wireless: Connect, update, and buy content wirelessly from Wi-Fi hot spots. Stream millions of songs over Wi-Fi directly to your Zune HD and turn it into a portable digital jukebox.
  5. Web Browser: Enjoy your favorite websites with a full-featured web browser including tap-to-zoom technology, built-in accelerometer, and touchscreen QWERTY keyboard.

There are tons of pictures of the new harware over at Gizmodo and there is also a short video demo below.

I’m not finding anything on the price point yet but, as soon as I do I will update this entry. It seems very fast and sleek in the video and I’m looking forward to some more demo’s and the release!

More to come!

According to Paul Thurrott over at the SuperSite the browser for the new Zune HD will be a “Flavor” of IE 6. Check out his latest article on the new Hardware.

Also, I found over at PCWorld, an older Article saying the NEw Zune HD will come in 16 and 32 gig versions. But, that may be subject to change.
