Microsoft’s next generation music player, The Zune, will have a touch screen, Web browser and an HD Radio receiver.

imageThe Zune HD, the new device from Microsoft, will also carry a high-definition video output that will let people play files through a docking station on HD televisions. The Zune's screen will use organic light-emitting diodes (LED’s). This technology will help improve battery life and image quality.

Zune HD is the next iteration of the Zune device family and brings a new level of listening and viewing experiences to the portable media player category.

Zune will be a premium partner in the Xbox LIVE Video Marketplace, bringing a catalogue of TV and film to the platform. The move will expose the Zune brand experience to millions of new consumers for the first time.

About Zune.

  • Zune HD comes with a built-in HD Radio receiver so users can listen to higher-quality sound than traditional radio on the go. Users also will have access to the additional song and artist data broadcast by HD Radio stations as well as additional channels from their favourite stations multicasting in HD. If you don’t like the song playing on your station’s HD channel, switch to its HD2 or HD3 channels for additional programming.
  • The bright OLED touch screen interface allows users to flip through music, movies and other content with ease, and the 16:9 widescreen format display (480x272 resolution) offers a premium viewing experience on the go.
  • The HD-compatible output lets Zune HD customers playback supported HD video files from the device through a premium high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) audiovisual docking station (sold separately) direct to an HD TV in 720p.*
  • Zune HD will include a full-screen Internet browser optimized for multitouch functionality.
  • Zune HD is Wi-Fi enabled, allowing for instant streaming to the device from the more than 5 million-track Zune music store.
