It's official
« on: October 02, 2007, 08:53:21 PM »

From our Zune blog:



The official announcement is out, and there's much to like in the new Zune players and software.

As rumored, the new hard drive Zune is a black 80GB model, smaller overall than its predecessor, but with a larger 3.2-inch screen. The control pad has been replaced with a "Zunepad", which is a touch-sensitive controller. Price: $249. This price matches the 80GB iPod - competitive indeed given that the Zune has a much larger screen, built-in FM, and wireless capabilities. (More on the new wireless features below!)

The flash Zunes are 4GB or 8GB, for $149 or $199. Those prices match the nano 4GB/8GB prices.

Nice, but the true excitement comes with the wireless capabilities. The new players - and the original Zune, once a firmware upgrade is released - will allow wireless Zune-to-PC sync!! Beyond that, song sharing between Zunes will be possible through a new social networking site. No longer is song-sharing limited to nearby Zunes.

Thanks to CrunchGear for its coverage of this announcement.

I wonder if people will still buy 80GB iPods over it even though the 80GB Zune has the same features and more than the iPod.

EDIT: 16GB! OMG WIN!

Is this correct (16 GB zune flash model)? because the post also states the ipod nano as being 8 and 16, which is incorrect. COuld it be a typo?

guys, if there is going to be a pc to zune or vice versa synching,
we're gonna have to buy a device that connects to the computer that will connect the zune to the pc wirelessly.
how else will the zune connect with the pc ?

If it is 16gb, Apple has some serious back-watching to do Grin

Maybe it will connect to your wireless router?
