I’m late on this but I’ll get it out the way. The Zune HD will soon be getting an update to its firmware which will bring some pretty nice features to the device.
The new features include:
- Smart DJ – Much like iTunes Genius, this feature will allow you to play songs which are similar
- Browse Zune Marketplace on TV via Dock: This will allow you to view the Zune Marketplace on your TV via the dock.
- Expanded Video Codec Support – more codec support will include Xvid and AVI support which will require no transcoding when syncing to your Zune HD
The update should be coming in the next few weeks. There has also been talks about a 64GB version of the Zune HD. Microsoft is mum on this topic (for now)…
