Zune HD customization adds photos, Xbox avatars

Posted in Zune HD by Conner Flynn on December 12th, 2010

Microsoft has opened up its Zune Originals customization for custom images. Zune HD buyers can now either upload a photo of their own or use their Xbox Live avatars in one of several poses. They are etched in grayscale and the photos allow four different etch styles.

Either of these options adds $25 to the price and can be combined with any color and is available for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities. Microsoft sells players with the special engraving starting at $205 for a 16GB edition all the way up to $375 for a 64GB model. Each model comes with a free power adapter to charge from the PC.

Zune HD gets Live Messenger, new games

Posted in Zune HD by Conner Flynn on October 3rd, 2010

Microsoft has given the Zune HD its first significant app catalog update in months and headlined it with Windows Live Messenger. The app is the Zune’s first instant messaging app. It supports most of the same features, like Facebook chat as well as social feeds from Facebook, Flickr and MySpace. It doesn’t really multitask but will change status to reflect currently playing music.

There are also three action and puzzle games, Castles & Cannons, Dr. Optics and WordMonger. Microsoft last gave the Zune HD a major non-game app through the Facebook client in March. It appears that they really are turning their attention more toward Windows Phone 7, which should have much broader app support.

New Zune HD coming soon?

Posted in Zune HD by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2010

When it comes to design, the Zune HD is one of the best. So we are glad to know that a new version may be in the works. ZDNet thinks that some new Zune hardware is coming soon. We don’t have much in the way of details, but speculation is that it would be packing an ARM CPU with some software tricks from Windows Phone 7.

Whatever the case, we should know by early 2011 as that’s when it would arrive.

Posted in Zune HD by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2010

Over the past few days Microsoft has silently cut prices on the Zune HD through an at least temporary promo. Microsoft’s media player now costs $190 for a 16GB model at Amazon. That’s $32 less than the original price. The 32GB model has also dropped to $250.

Microsoft’s very own store has dropped its prices as well, to $200 for a 16GB Zune HD and $270 for a 32GB edition. It’s looking like a great time to buy a Zune. Walmart and some other retailers are also closely matching those prices on Amazon.

Posted in Microsoft by Shane McGlaun on September 16th, 2009

zunehdteardown-sbI am not sure how I feel about the companies that tear up perfectly good gadgets to show us what’s inside the shiny case. I guess it’s much better than me having to tear into my own gadget out of morbid curiosity.

The gang over at Rapid Repair has torn their shiny new Zune HD asunder for your viewing pleaser, or displeasure depending on how gadget squeamish you are. It appears that that teardown is relatively easy to accomplish and you are sure to void your warranty if you open your own up.
