Microsoft will hold a event on Tuesday in Redmond to herald the second generation of Zune music players, BetaNews has learned.

According to sources close to the situation, both Microsoft chairman Bill Gates and Design and Development chief J Allard will be on hand for the event. The main part of the announcement will center around the players, which will include the first flash memory based Zunes.

I'm either gonna go with one of the Flash Zunes, or a new Nano. The more I look at the Zune, the more that I think that it might not be as ergonomic as the Nano. It doesn't seem to fit very well in your hand to watch video. After seeing these pictures, I think I'm gonna go w/ the Nano. Sorry Bill tongue.gif

I have stuck with MS for awhile now but IMO this is terrible specially with the new ipod touch as its competition. This i don't believe stands a chance. sad.gif

$400 for a media device that has only 16 GB... for what? touch screen? No thanks, I'll pass.

Zune 2?
What about a Zune 1?
Do they even sell this outside of USA?

The i-pod touch wi-fi web browsing would cool to have, but both microsoft and apple are to damn worried about drm and making money off content. When I want a mp3/video player, I'll buy one from one of the companies that are in the business of making mp3 players, not content pushers. If the content pushers want me to use their player/buy their content, they should give me free/deeply discounted hardware like the console makers, cable tv, etc do.

FOR ME.. personally.. an Mp3 player is an Mp3 player is an Mp3 player.. I recently sold my old black Zune on eBay and got one of the Halo 3 zunes. It works fine for me.. plays my videos and mp3s. I'm glad it's getting the 2.1 fw, but i'm still going to use it just the same... nano, ipod.. zune.. what the hell ever.. whatever floats your boat, ultimately, don't they all do the EXACT SAME THING? And with the recent price drop, who can complain, or why complain ? smile.gif Enjoy!
