After a series of leaks, Microsoft has officially acknowledged its next-gen Zune player. Though the full specs of the Zune HD are not out yet, the things confirmed are almost accurate to the rumored specs. It has a 3.3-inch 16:9 OLED (480×272) multitouch display, HD Radio, HD Video-out with the help of an AV Dock, Wi-Fi and a web browser. The Zune HD will arrive in US this fall with no signs of an international launch.
The Zune Marketplace will also be integrated with the Xbox Live Video Marketplace, giving users a wide selection of TV shows and films. Microsoft will be showcasing the service at the E3 next month with the launch expected this fall.
