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.”
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!
