I’ve just been told on Twitter that there is a rumour, and it’s to be stressed that this is a rumour, that Microsoft may still be planning on using the Zune HD to launch the product into EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa)!!!
That means that this sweet ass gadget:
could be in our shores, in our stores and, more importantly, in our hands In my opinion, the new Zune is much sexier than anything I’ve seen from Apple…
The specs for this are:
3.3 inch OLED display capacitive touch screen (480×272 16:9 aspect ratio).
Size: 2.07″x4.08″x.35″ (52.7 mm x 102.1 mm x 8.9 mm)
Weight: 2.6 ounces (74 grams)
Runs on Nvidia Tegra APX with 8 independent processors.
HD radio tuner.
720p high definition video support and output (additional dock required).

Web browser (based on Internet Explorer Mobile 6 for Windows CE).

I’ve wanted a Zune for ages so if this is true-it’d be AWESOME
*Update* Looks like it truly was a rumour, as the Zune HD isn’t available in Europe (or anywhere else for that matter)
