New Microsoft Zune HD is Official
Microsoft may have a winner with their upcoming Zune HD, officially announced recently and sports some high-definition quality output.
The Zune HD will have:
HD Radio – the Zune will have an integrated HD Radio receiver so you can tune in to HD radio content (too bad we ain’t got one in the Philippines).
HD Video Out – it will support 720p HD movies via the AV Dock (dock sold separately).
Touchscreen – the Zune HD has multi-touch navigation, a 3.3-inch screen and 16:9 OLED display (480×272 pixel resolution) screen
Microsoft just launched the official Zune HD microsite.
Of course, the Zune HD still has WiFi connectivity but will also be able to surf the web with a built-in browser (mobile IE8 perhaps?). The earlier report that it will include an NVidia Tegra is not yet confirmed. These new media player should be out in stores by September (again, there’s a very slim chance it will be available locally except in Greenhills and Multiply stores).
