iPhone Developer (prev. PSP Dev)
I only see one button on the device in the pics. Although I've never even held a Zune :blushing:, where would the controls be located?
Maybe I'm shitting my imagination, but I think the silver in the middle is the new "main" button and the two brushed metal sides are the other buttons. Unless it does some massive slide up into a phone type Transformer shit, then I think I'm right.
It was sarcasm.
Also I'm a bit disappointed that the Zune HD might just turn out to have the same features that the previous zunes have had but just has touch navigation :/
What did you want them to add? Apps,Web they another mp3 player? For be I be happy with better battery life and more space and screen size.
Some more ZuneHD information has trickled into our inbox, and while we do not, in general, cover PMP’s, Zune seems inextricably linked with the future of Windows Mobile, so its probably a valid topic of conversation here.
From our limited information, it seems the ZuneHD will feature a lot of what Windows Mobile owners have long been waiting for.
The ZuneHD will have a capacitive, multi-touch OLED screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and TV out, from what looks to be a HDMI port on the side. The radio will now be HD and the device will support HD media playback, which will be available from the updated Zune Marketplace.
The ZuneHD will also support 3D Xbox games, but it is unclear what form this will take.
The device will come in 16 and 32 GB versions, and will support wireless sync. It will also finally come with a browser that supports multi-touch.
The device is set to launch in Fall, around September, and will also finally be available outside US, in Canada, UK and France, and possibly other European countries.
It remains likely this device will serve as a showcase for Windows Mobile 7 when it is released, and Microsoft is expected to spend a considerable amount marketing the device and service.
Edit: Something more for our readers to chew on. While we do not have confirmation of this, many bloggers are claiming the device will be nVidia Tegra powered.
