Microsoft has now developed the Zune HD, which has not yet been released to stores, but will likely come in a 16GB and a 32GB model with lots of new features, like a high definition output that allows it to transmit in 720p HD on a user’s television. It also allows users to access high definition radio stations and features a 3.3″ high-resolution touch screen.
Microsoft hasn’t yet announced a release date or a price for the player. It is rumoured, however, to cost about $249 for a 16 GB model. A 32 GB model will also be released, and it has been rumoured that a 64 GB model may also be produced.
The device will also feature wireless access, a Web browser with a tap-to-zoom function, a touch QWERTY keyboard and a metallic casing.
