Ah, the Zune HD has landed for US people only atm... It looks like a great PMP, and with Tegra under the hood has alot of potential yet to be unlocked as far as being a games machine like the touch.

Personally, Im still not sure I want one... if it was also a phone... yes.

We'll see what apps/games its gets before making a call on how it will fare on that front.

Here is engadgets review, plenty of pics and vids



edit: It looks like it hasnt been added to the updates bit yet (cheeky negsun!) but the latest DirectX compile has been released a few weeks ago in early August. It will take Vista users to DX11 to be on par with Windows 7 RTM systems. Of course atm the Direct3D11 liraries will be doing jack all, but at least the DX10 updates may actually do some good with certain apps and games
