Microsoft takes the wraps off Zune

It hasn’t been that big of a secret, but today Microsoft unveiled its digital media player Zune. First you’ll notice the large 3-inch video screen, which can be viewed vertically or horizontally. But the best feature is its ability to wirelessly share “select” songs, playlists and pictures with friends who also have Zune players. And coming in a later software update, Zune will allow you to broadcast what you’re playing to other Zune listeners nearby. Think of it as a social music device. The unit sports 30GB of storage and three colors: white, black and brown. Also launching soon is the Zune Marketplace, a Microsoft version of iTunes. But wait, the player isn’t available “until the holidays,” and Microsoft has yet to reveal a price tag.
