Paul Thurrott (@thurrott), a fairly well-known Microsoft blogger, tweeted this:
Just to be clear, the June Zune rumors are *not* about the Zune HD. Which is coming out in September. 🙂
The fourth-generation Zune was expected to be unveiled by Microsoft later this fall. If you believe Thurrott, the much anticipated Zune HD now has a date: September. Some have already guessed September as the launch month for the Zune HD but coming from someone within Microsoft seems to solidify those rumors.
What is all the fuss about? How does a large multitouch OLED display coupled with Windows Mobile 7 encased in sexy aluminum sound to you? More importantly it gives some much-needed competition to Apple’s iPod franchise. I’m a true believer that fair competition leads to better products at lower prices leading to more value to the customer. Thank you Aaron for the tip!
