Besides the big Zune 80 Microsoft also unveiled new flash-based Zune 8 and Zune 4 digital audio players. As you've probably guessed by now these players feature 8GB and 4GB capacities. Just like the Zune 80 they feature a new interface and new touch-sensitive controls.

The Zune 4 and Zune 8 cost $149 and $199, respectively. Availability is slated for November and you'll be able to get them in black, red, pink and green. These models measure 41.4 x 91.5 x 8.5mm and feature a 1.8" LCD display.
  • Wireless sync. Cut the cord to your PC. Refresh your Zune with new content anywhere you charge your device. Connect to your PC through your home wireless network by setting your Zune to automatically sync the latest podcasts, music and more from your stereo dock, AC Adapter or speaker dock accessory.

  • Wireless Zune-to-Zune sharing. Share full-length tracks of your favorite songs, albums, playlists, pictures and even audio podcasts. Listen to the full track of any song you receive up to three times, and even pass along songs you receive to other friends who have a Zune. If you like a song you receive, you can easily add it to your wish list and then buy it from your PC the next time you sync.

  • Recorded TV or movies to go. Zune will automatically import TV shows or movies recorded using a PC running Windows Media Center. Record your favorites, sync to Zune and hit the road.

  • Built-in FM radio. With the built-in FM tuner you can listen to your favorite local FM radio stations while you’re on the go. Advanced tuning capabilities allow you to see the name of the song and artist currently playing on select frequencies.
