Default Zune HD Coming In September?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2009/05/rumor-zune-hd-coming-in-september.ars' target='_blank'>http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/ne...n-september.ars</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//zt/auto/1242327289.usr495.png" style="border: 0;" width="500" /></p><p>Paul Thurrott, a guy who should know, says the Zune HD is coming to us this September. NeoWin <a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/main/09/05/13/microsofts-zune-hd-set-to-hit-amazon-in-september#comments" target="_blank">backs this up</a>, saying Amazon will ship the device in September. Remember that this is all vapor until the device is in your hands, so take everything here with a healthy helping of salt. Check out our other coverage of Zune HD (including rumors of an <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/93276/neowin-confirms-zune-will-go-international-this-year.html" target="_blank">international launch</a> and <a href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/93396/rumor-roundup-zune-hd-to-get-pixie-dust-fairy-wings.html" target="_blank">Tegra graphics</a>) to see what all this Zune HD hooplah is all about.</p>

I thnk I've figured it all out. MS is not preparing Zune Phone hardware.
But what they will do is release a high-end media device a la iPod Touch.

Then release the platform (with phone support) out to ODMs.

It may all be based on Windows Mobile, or the Zune platform will be able to be installed on Windows Mobile devices.

Problem solved! And you heard it here first.

Of course if I'm wrong, I disavow all knowledge of the existence of this post.

Default How possible !

How comes that Jason Dunn and other Zunethoughts guys can't tell us if it's true or not that the Zune HD will be out ?

Well, Jason's got the most inside info of any of us, but I'm not sure even he knows whats coming. And even if he did, he's under an NDA, which means he's not allowed to talk about anything he knows. It's surprising that the Zune marketing guys haven't made an official statement on this (even a non-denial denial along the lines of "we don't comment on rumor and speculation" would at least be acknowledging something). At this point I feel like we're being left to dry until they decide to announce it officially.

When I'm allowed to talk, I can say with a fair amount of confidence that you'll find the most accurate, in-depth Zune HD content right here. But until then, unfortunately I can't say much about the rumours.

CNET is spilling a lotta beans:
Microsoft confirms Zune HD coming this fall | Beyond Binary - CNET News

Zune HD runs on WinCE, comes with OLED touch screen, HD video *and* HD radio, and Zune video service will replace Video Marketplace on XBOX 360.
More details at E3 this weekend.

this is ridiculous...

Jason, hello? Are you still not allowed to talk despite the official confirmation/press release from Microsoft?

This site definitely needs some more love...

I assume by now you guys have read the introductory paragraph on the Zune HD post I did last night? There was a press embargo, a site in the UK broke it, and everything turned to crap. Not a lot I could do about that. I did the best I could.
