Microsoft to launch new Zune in 2011?

Posted on Thursday, September 16 2010 @ 02:05:52 CEST by

While MP3 players aren't as hot anymore as a couple of years ago, it appears Microsoft may still make a stand in this market by launching a new Zune. Yahoo News reports Microsoft allegedly plans to launch a new device in 2011, the new Zune is expected to be based on an ARM chip and could come in the same three capacities as the current model: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
Details on the supposed new Zune are as scarce as they could be. For now, there’s nothing in the way of possible name for the rumored device (such as, say, the Zune HD2) or features, although Foley’s spy says that the player could come in the same three capacities as the current Zune HD — 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB — and that it might dump the Nvidia Tegra processor in the existing HD for an ARM-based chip.

Not much to go on, but WMPoweruser.com found a Microsoft job posting that might bolster the rumors: an open position for a senior mechanical engineer in Microsoft’s Portable Entertainment Group, the team responsible for last year's Zune HD. (WMPoweruser managed to peg many of the Zune HD's features well before they were officially announced.)

"We are currently building the next generation of portable entertainment and communication devices," the job posting reads, "and we need you."
