New Zune coming today?
Although unconfirmed, Microsoft may be planning to reveal a new Zune player later today, according to iLounge. If the report is true, the player will be premiered at an event in the company's home city of Redmond, Washington, in either a full preview or a simple initial announcement.
The actual nature of the potential product is unknown; while Microsoft has in the past declared its intentions to expand into flash memory and better wireless abilities, the company could also just be introducing long-requested software functions, such as podcasts. The possibility of a Zune phone has effectively been defeated. Microsoft had been expected to make some sort of presentation on May 1st, but this clearly fell through.
