Zunited.net reports on director James Gunnâ€™s mention of a new Zune at a Microsoft invite-only event.
A couple weeks ago I was invited to â€œThe Microsoft Experience,â€ a forum for showing gadget-loving folks in the media like myself all the new products that Microsoft has and is working on.
Some of the other stuff â€“ the new Zune, the upcoming Microsoft phone, also looked fantastic. But, admittedly, Iâ€™m going to have a hard time getting out of my 20,000 songs on iTunes to actually switch over to Zune â€“ and I feel stuck to the iPhone because of the apps. I also saw a new Microsoft tablet which is a lot like the iPad. However, like the iPad, I have a real fear that these glossy screen reading devices are going to ruin the steps the Kindle (which I adore) and other ereaders took to have a more print-like reading experience.
James of course writes a lot more about his experience with Project Natal, but his mention of a new Zune is of interest, especially given the lack of compatibility of the current ZuneHD with Windows phone 7, and some other rumours of an upcoming, higher resolution ZuneHD 2
