Not dead: Microsoft release email app, game for the Zune HD

Despite rumours of its demise, the ZuneHD is still kicking around, at least in the hands of its existing user base.

Microsoft has released 2 new apps for the music player.

The most significant is an email client which supports  Windows Live, Exchange, and Gmail and which bears a striking resemblance to the Windows Phone 7 one. Unfortunately while pretty full featured, it lacks in 2 important areas – it lacks support for HTML email but more importantly has no access to an address book, meaning the user has to type in the email address for the recipient every time.`


The next game is BBQ Battle which is a standard tower defence game played out in a picnic area versus bothersome bugs.

The apps can be found in the Zune HD marketplace.
