Finally, the rumors has ended, although not as much hyped as the iPhone when it was about to release, Microsoft launched the second generation of its premiere digital music player –Zune. The next Microsoft Zune will be available in 80, 8 and 4 GB models and in three cool colors.The new Microsoft Zune has the following nifty features:
- Wireless sync. Zune devices will automatically sync over consumersâ€™ home wireless networks with this helpful new feature, aimed at ensuring that Zune owners always have the latest podcasts and other content ready to go when theyâ€˜re leaving home. Syncing with the collection on their PC happens via a home wireless network and will start on its own when the device is placed in its dock or plugged in to charge. Alternatively, the sync can be started manually,
- Extended wireless sharing.Share select full-length songs, albums, playlists, pictures and even audio podcasts from device to device. Consumers can now listen to any song received up to three times with no time restrictions, and they can now also pass along songs to other friends who have a Zune,
- Recorded television content to go. The Zune software will now automatically import broadcast content recorded on MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ® Media Center for Windows VistaÂ® Home Premium or Ultimate, so consumers can sync them onto their Zune media player and watch them on the bus, in their car or wherever they want when theyâ€™re out and about.
The question is, could it finally make some headway and match up with the iPhone?
