- About Zune HD
- The Zune HD comes to mobile media, which is the next big thing for Microsoft, and aims to be a direct competitor to Apple's iPod touch line. The new Zune offers several features not found on the iPod Touch. It is including an OLED display, HD radio, and high-definition video playback (HD for Zune). Long-standing Zune features, such as a photo viewer, games, podcast management, and Zune Pass music subscription integration, will continue to be supported, as well.
- The Zune HD isn't the first MP3 player to offer a 3.3-inch touch-screen OLED display or high-definition video output, but it is one of the first portable audio devices with announced plans for an HD radio tuner. Beyond the added fidelity of HD radio, the format also lends itself well to transmitting artist and song data, which is useful for the Zune's existing FM radio song-tagging and download feature.
- Microsoft has said it isn't building a ZunePhone, but Microsoft does want to be able to offer its Zune service on phones. And Stephenson said that is a long-term goal that will takes at least until next year to fulfill.
