More Zune: FM radio, transmitter, no scroll wheel

Zune FM Radio But No Wheel

Yet more information has come to light today regarding the Zune and its abilities. As was anticipated by some, Microsoft intends to compete on features and is including an FM radio (complete with RDS track data from supporting radio stations) in addition to an FM transmitter that will broadcast audio to a nearby stereo. This supplements the somehwat limited WiFi already set to be included in the player. Surprisingly, the apparent scroll wheel at the heart of the controls is in fact a four-way directional pad whose scroll rate changes depending on the time spent holding a button. Other notable details include the presence of Windows Media Player-style visualization as a playback option and an interface that borrows some (but not all) elements from Windows Media Center.
