Microsoft takes Zune website live

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Redmond (WA) - One could easily get lost in the gadget frenzy of this month. Just in case you will forget about Zune when planning a purchase of new game consoles, an HD DVD player for the Xbox 360 or Intel's quad-core processor, Microsoft has launched a website dedicated to creating some excitement for the otherwise rather bland portable media player.

See the Microsoft Zune in detail here ...

Zune.net wraps all the details about Zune in a fancy package and highlights the player's music download services, social networking approach and availoable accessories, such as stereo docks, headphones, car adapters and a remote control. There's also an Apple-like approach, with some artists promoting the upcoming device.

We hear that Microsoft will be publishing more details about the Zune U.S. launch on November 10 on Zune.net. So, just in case you can't see Apple's Ipod anymore, starve for a Wi-Fi capable music player in white black or brown, expect some Zune news later this week.
