Zune Features and Toshiba

Multiple previously rumored features of Microsoft's upcoming Zune player have been revealed, courtesy of recent FCC filings. According to the completed test reports, the Zune player will indeed use a 30GB hard drive, support 802.11g wireless and FM radio, and will stream music to nearby Zune players in addition to letting users bookmark songs they would like to buy later. More surprising, though not completely unexpected, is that Microsoft has not assumed responsibility for manufacturing the Zune as it has for its Xbox consoles: the FCC documentation describes the Zune as the "Toshiba 1089 Portable Media Player," indicating that Microsoft sought the expertise of the Gigabeat series creator for the final product rather than control the entire process itself.
