Default CrunchGear Gets Some Zune Hands-On Time

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://crunchgear.com/2006/10/12/crunchgear-gets-up-close-and-personal-with-zunes/#more-1635' target='_blank'>http://crunchgear.com/2006/10/12/crunchgear-gets-up-close-and-personal-with-zunes/#more-1635</a><br /><br /></div><span style="font-style: italic;">&quot;Cesar Menendez, our brother blogger over at </span><a target="_blank" href="http://www.zuneinsider.com/" style="font-style: italic;">Zune Insider</a><span style="font-style: italic;"> , was nice enough to invite us to a little Pre-Zuning at the Souped Up Cafe, where he was holding a little meet-up for all the Zune fanboys in the Seattle area. In addition, he was nice enough to let us snap a few pics of the hardware (pics of the interface were a no-no, it&rsquo;s still a work-in-progress) he&rsquo;d brought with him.We were expecting a singular Zune so we could get you guys some gear-porn (don&rsquo;t pretend you don&rsquo;t like it), but our man from Redmond brought three Zune&rsquo;s, one of each of the launch colors. So below we have a few snapshots of the Zunes (we think there should be a better pluralization than &ldquo;Zunes&rdquo;, but we&rsquo;ll leave that for later), and a hardcore video slideshow to keep you guys salivating until November 14, when, of course, you guys can get yours for $249.99.&quot;<br /><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/crunchgear-zune-oct12.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br /></span>Not much interesting here, but it's cool to hear from people that have had some hands-on time with it. What makes no sense to me though is the comment about the interface being a &quot;work in progress&quot;. These things are up for pre-sale on Amazon.com, supposedly shipping on the 14th of November...they've been produced in the factory, they're being shipped now. How could the interface be &quot;in progress&quot;? Something doesn't seem right about that. I think it's more likely that they want to save some of the &quot;wow&quot; factor for the official launch. If that's the case, they should have just said so.<span style="font-style: italic;"></span>

Maybe it's the current hardware, but a slightly later software build that's still in development.

I seem to recall many windows mobile articles where microsoft employees had current hardware with later unreleased software builds.

Until the lie I'll assume they're not.

That's possible, yes - a newer revision of firmware, something newer than what's in the box, so when people get their new Zunes there will already be an updated firmware for it? That would be great actually.
