Microsoft Zune 2 Shrinks

Microsoft has unveiled the updated Zune Player. The Zune 2 will come in 4GB, 8GB (Flash versions) and an 80GB hard drive model. The 80GB version is only available in black, while the 4GB and 8GB versions will be available in black, red, pink, and green.

The new Zune's will allow users to sync their player to a computer over a home Wi-Fi network. But don’t worry if you already have a Zune as this feature will be available to you via a firmware upgrade.

Users who use Windows Media Center, Vista Home or Vista Ultimate can now sync PC-recorded TV content directly to your Zune.

Lets see how these now compete with the obvious new generation of iPod Nano and iPod Classic.

The new Zube 2 players should be out in November, priced at $149, $199, and $249, respectively
