Coming Zune!

So Microsoft unveiled it’s iPod competitor today.  Per usual with a new Microsoft product, Sci-Fi Tech reports “there’s no precise launch date or price yet, although Microsoft does day(sic) it’ll be available ‘this holiday season.'”
According to Bloomberg, “The player offers a 30-gigabyte hard drive, comes in black, white and brown and allows users to wirelessly share music with nearby devices, the Redmond, Washington-based company said today in a statement.”

Sci-Fi Tech also reports “the Zune will feature built-in Wi-Fi, allowing users to wirelessly share songs and videos… theoretically. The press release says you’ll be able to share full-length “sample tracks” of “select” songs as well as homemade recordings and pictures. Sounds like there’ll be some pretty serious copy protection.”

MobilityToday has a video of the Zune on YouTube

Honestly I’ve got my iPod, i’m going to be purchasing a UMPC as soon as ASUS does a US launch. I don’t see this being a device for me… But it sure seems cool as hell!
