[Blorge] Microsoft’s Zune 3.0 to hit during holiday season!

post #1 of 31

Microsoft boss Francois Ruault said in a French newspaper the next Zune will hit stores sometime during the holiday season… of 2009!

Anythingbutipod broke the news in English citing the GNT and French digital music blog GenMP3. Ruault, the "directeur de la division grand public de Microsoft France," believes the third generation Zune will hit the US and other countries late next year — likely immediately before or during the holiday season.

Many European Zune fans have been wondering when the Zune will hit European shelves, and Ruault’s comment on the next-gen Zune’s release-window was essentially the answer to their… wonder.

Microsoft’s future media player should see a global release unlike previous Zune models, satisfying (the scarce?) Zune fans worldwide.

Though we can’t help bashing the Zune (it’s just such an easy target), we can admit that it’s a pretty great player overall (for Windows users), and the art on the new players truly is bangin’.

The only bad thing about Zune is the name, Zune is a stupid name I feel like a dumb ___ saying it when people ask me what it is. If you were to take the 80GB Zune and put an Ipod label on it and put a Zune label on an Ipod then people would be bashing the Ipod and not Zune.

I have a Zune 30 and have owned an Ipod nano, And the Zune is a much better player and not just because of the extra space.

If MS can put a processor in there to make the gui responsive while maintaining the heavy duty visual effects, that would be amazing!

Is that supposed to be an actual model or a virtual design? I wouldn't believe it if thats the actual thing, it doesn't look very real.

That thing does look sweet, and I may buy it as my next cellphone if the unlocked ones are cheap enough (or they make it for verizon...)
Can't wait to actually have an mp3 player with a phone, instead of a phone with an mp3 player
