Zune Scorpio Delay Leak

Microsoft's upcoming "Scorpio" sequel to the hard disk-based Zune has suffered a critical setback, says an unconfirmed report. Originally intended to reach factories by August 31st, the 80GB device is said to have suffered a late production glitch that would easily sever a connecting cable attached to the Zune's mainboard. A new S-shaped cable has reportedly solved the problem but also pushed back initial production by weeks, potentially jeopardizing Microsoft's intended holiday season launch.

No features of the updated Zune were released, though the smaller, flash-based "Draco" player is also claimed to be on track and has already gone into production as of July 23rd. Release timeframes have not been cemented for either device but are expected no sooner than September and may be closer to the one-year anniversary of the first Zune's November launch.
