Default The FCC Tells Us About the New Flash-Based Zunes

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/02/microsofts-4gb-8gb-flash-based-zunes-revealed-by-fcc/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/02/microsofts-4gb-8gb-flash-based-zunes-revealed-by-fcc/</a><br /><br /></div><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1191353320.usr1.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br />Ah, you've just got to love the FCC and the way their public disclosure process ruins the secrets of many a company. Interestingly enough I've been told (so this could be false) that there's some sort of check-box the company can select when submitting their product to have it NOT appear on the public site...yet no one seems to do it. Apparently <a href="https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod/oet/forms/blobs/retrieve.cgi?attachment_id=850051&amp;native_or_pdf=pdf" target="_blank">some things have been withheld</a> though.<br /><br />At any rate, <a href="https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&amp;RequestTimeout=500&amp;calledFromFrame=N&amp;application_id=319436&amp;fcc_id='C3K-1125'" target="_blank">these drawings confirm</a> what we already know: there's a 4 GB and 8 GB Flash-based Zune coming from Microsoft. We were all about 90% sure, but we now know that the devices will also have WiFi built-in (coming from a Marvel 88W8686 chipset)&nbsp; - so it looks like the social is coming to these new Zunes as well. The question is, will the WiFi on these new Zunes do anything more than the last Zunes? I sure hope so, or these products are going to be hammered on as heavily as the last generation.
