They finally did it…after much anticipation, Microsoft says they are about to feature a new mp3 player to rival the market leader Apple’s ipod. Zune is its name and should come out before Christmas. More models will be released in 2007.
You’ll be able to share and sample tracks by Wi-Fi and hold hands with the Xbox 360, any personal computer with Windows Media Center and cell phones using the Windows mobile os. With ipod commanding fifty percent of the market share, Zune will have to be pretty special. Bill Gates and company assure us it is.
