Default C|NET Gets Hands-On Time with the Zune HD

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-10251668-56.html?tag=mncol;txt' target='_blank'>http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-1...l?tag=mncol;txt</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"As D: All Things Digital wrapped up Thursday, I got a quick chance to play around with the Zune HD that Microsoft plans to ship this fall. The software maker announced plans for the product on Tuesday and released a photo, but this is a product I was curious to see firsthand. The most striking feature from my brief look was the device's striking organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display."</em></p><p><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="600" height="360" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DU7GAGL9TH8" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DU7GAGL9TH8"></embed></object></p><p>This is one of several first looks at the Zune HD that have happened today - check out the video and I'll post the others shortly. All I can say is: WOW! That UI looks fluid. Oh, and the cameraman doesn't know how focus works.</p>

Wow...just wow. Look at that interface!

I noticed something very different in the UI though, there is no wallpaper seen in the background in the main menu or anywhere else. The only thing which looks like a wallpaper appears to be displayed on something like a standby screen at the very beginning of the video. Well, i sure hope they have not gone and removed the option of applying wallpapers.
