Engadget published photos of a new Zune HD. link: http://www.engadget.com/2009/04/10/is-this-the-zune-hd/
How do you know how big it is? (But I agree, HD seems very high res for what I'm assuming is a handheld device.)HD? So that tiny display is 720p? Can you guys hold on a sec my pig just flew off, brb.
Microsoft's Zune music player was originally launched in November 2006 as a competitor to the iPod. Zune sales have not been particularly impressive and still falls well behind the iPod in marketshare.We present what might possibly be your first look at, yes... the Zune HD. In the gallery below, you can see images from what appears to be a forthcoming marketing campaign for Microsoft's new PMP. We don't have any word on specs right now, though we've got a sneaking suspicion this will have an HD display.
Doubt the HD title actually refers to 720p. There are a lot of devices with the HD tagline (HTC Touch HD, Samsung Omnia HD, etc) that don't actually have HD screens (although the Omnia HD I think has 720p video support). It likely is just a marketing thing, since I bet it has a fairly high resolution screen, just not 720p.
I really like the artwork. Wonder if it was done on a mac?
Damn A brushed metal silver Zune with a big screen is pretty sexy. That might be my next MP3 player. Unless Apple does something fancy with the next hard disk based iPod.
