Default Steve Ballmer Shows Off the Zune HD

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2009/05/28/exclusive-steve-ballmer-demos-the-zune-hd-for-engadget/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2009/05/28/...d-for-engadget/</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1243536015.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Johnny-On-The-Spot, Joshua Topolsky, managed to get a bit of a demo of the new Zune HD from none other than Steve Ballmer himself. Other than saying that the OLED screen is "gorgeous", Topolsky doesn't have much to say about the Zune HD. There's a <a href="http://www.engadget.com/photos/steve-ballmer-demos-the-zune-hd-for-engadget/" target="_blank">gallery with some photos</a> that tell a bit more of a story - there looks to be some sort of button at the top, and on Ballmer's Zune HD there's a Zune logo on the lower left - I suspect it's just a sticker indicating that this is a pre-production unit. Take a peek at the photos and tell me if you notice anything else of note...</p>

How about the video from Gizmodo...


The animations are as smooth and pretty as can be. I can't wait for this thing!

I immediately notice how beautiful the screen looks while at the same time being a fairly small device. Other than that is the fact that the center below the screen is an OK/Enter button. I also wonder every time I see pics of this thing if the area below the screen is input/buttons. It seems to me that this area seems to be made of the same material as the "squircle" is now. So it occurs to me that the area below the screen could be buttons quite easily. The only complaints I have seen so far really seem to be the over all low resolution, the "possible" low storage capacity and that there is no input on the device other than the touch screen. Well there obviously is at least one front button and I think the area to either side of that are buttons as well. I also keep wondering/thinking maybe that there is expansion capability. I could swear looking at the photos there is a type of card slot, maybe MicroSD
