Zune HD has finally been confirmed by Microsoft after some time of speculation on the interwebs. Although they haven’t given out many details on the specifications yet, the Zune HD will come with a lower OLED resolution than was being rumored along with integration with Xbox Live and Zune Marketplace. Zune HD will be available in new markets but no word on which countries will see it this fall. Microsoft hasn’t told about the storage capacities as well. Although it is clear that it’ll be available in at least 2 colors, a platinum and a black one (shown below). It’ll also utilize a new Dock for HD video output at 720p.
More news are expected at the E3 conference, where “attendees will see first-hand how Zune integrates into Xbox LIVE creating a game-changing entertainment experience” according to Engadget.
