Computeractive.co.uk brought this information from Sean Nichols (vunet.com) to my attention – it’s the official release of Zune today:

MicrosoftOpens in a new tab. has released details of its much-anticipated Zune media playerOpens in a new tab..

The device will offer 30GB of storage, access to online communities and music stores, and a wireless networking feature allowing users to share media. It will feature a 3in screen and come in black, brown or white.

Unconfirmed reports claim that the Zune will sell at $299, and will be launched in time for the holiday season. The device is said to be based on ToshibaOpens in a new tab.‘s Gigabeat player.

What do they mean by “access to online communities”, please? Anyone? If I find out – later – I’ll post an update.

One of probably hundreds of articles here (not to mention thousands of blog entries).
