Zune HD gets officially announced


After a long jaunt round the rumour mill, Microsoft’s next-gen Zune has been announced. Enter a bigger 3.3in screen, multitouch capabilities, HD radio and 720p video output. Wi-Fi comes as standard, with touch browsing supported on the portable Internet Explorer, and it’ll play nicely with Xbox Live and Zune Marketplace. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but the Zune HD will be coming to ‘new markets’. Here’s hoping the UAE fits that bill.

UPDATE: Official word is, Microsoft has ‘no plans as of yet to launch Zune in the region’. We’ll keep dreaming then…
