Default Gizmodo Has Exclusive Zune Photo and Info


Since Zune Thoughts hasn't launched yet, here's some Zune info for you... ;-)

"Thanks to our awesome tipsters, we scored this exclusive picture of the Microsoft Zune. Yes, it looks almost exactly like the images we've shown you before on Gizmodo. The player also comes with a pair of magnetic headphones, which as you can see from the picture, stick to each other so they're easier to manage. The reason the shot is in black and white is because Microsoft assigned a unique color scheme to every Zune prototype in existence right now—all 150 of them—so any leaks could be traced to the employee who leaked it. We don't want to be jerks and get anybody fired."

Click through to Gizmodo to see the picture of the device - it's hard to tell much from a blurry B&W photo, but the basic design looks functional enough. There's also another post with some insider information that's quite slick: the buttons will have a "press and hold" function similar to Windows Mobile devices where if you hold down the directional pad it speeds up then jumps to an A to Z selection. That will speed up finding certain songs. It apparently also has a built-in FM transmitter, which is damn slick: one less accessory to buy, though it does mean there will be a UK-only version with no FM transmitter. This is shaping up to be an interesting device!
