So Gizmodo received this image today claiming to be Zune 3rd and for some good reasons, it is now termed as fake. Jared Marino from Zunited had a good look over the image and this is what he had to say.
“I can say beyond a shadows of a doubt that this image is fake and fan made. For numerous reasons. First off, Microsoft considers the HD the fourth generation device, not third, the gradients and bevels have been analyzed and are clearly made in Photoshop. The background is a Photoshop brush pack, the squircle image is ripped pixel for pixel from the Zune 80 Press image from Zune.net. I happen to be in close connection with Ryan Rea and Sources at Microsoft and I can tell you this is fake.”
Nice try Photoshop wannabe. Maybe if you had mailed it before the Zune HD leak, it would had been more exciting.
