Zune HD a go for Fall ’09

Microsoft has confirmed the Zune HD for Fall ’09 release in the U.S. The player will combine a built-in HD Radio receiver, high-definition (HD) video output capabilities, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) touch screen, Wi-Fi and an Internet browser. The Zune portable media player will also extend to the Xbox Live video marketplace, a community of 17 million subscribers.

  • 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 favorite
    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 (480×272 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.

Zune/Xbox Live integration will be demonstrated next week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
