Later this year, Microsoft will release a new version of their Zune player, the Zune HD. Here are some fact about the new Zune HD taken from On10.net:

  • HD radio
  • HD video with the use of dockingstation
  • OLED screen, widescreen 480×272
  • multitouch capabilities
  • Integrates with Xbox Live Marketplace

To play HD video you have to use a dockstation. That is plain stupid if you ask me. You should be able to just connect an HDMI cable from the Zune to a HDTV.

According to Joystiq.com, the combined Zune Marketplace and  Xbox Live Video Marketplace is coming to Europe, but no Zune HD yet. I do hope the we who lives in small countries also will be able to download videoes and not only big countries like United Kingdom and Germany.
