ZuneHD in Europe?!

I’ve just been told on Twitter that there is a rumour, and it’s to be stressed that this is a rumour, that Microsoft may still be planning on using the Zune HD to launch the product into EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa)!!!

That means that this sweet ass gadget:

could be in our shores, in our stores and, more importantly, in our hands 🙂 In my opinion, the new Zune is much sexier than anything I’ve seen from Apple…

The specs for this are:

  • 3.3 inch OLED display capacitive touch screen (480×272 16:9 aspect ratio).
  • Size: 2.07″x4.08″x.35″ (52.7 mm x 102.1 mm x 8.9 mm)
  • Weight: 2.6 ounces (74 grams)
  • Runs on Nvidia Tegra APX with 8 independent processors.
  • Multi-touch technology.
  • 16/32 GB
  • Built-in accelerometer.
  • HD radio tuner.
  • 720p high definition video support and output (additional dock required).
  • Wi-Fi connectivity 802.11b/g with Open, WEP, WPA, and WPA2 authentication modes and WEP 64- and 128-bit, TKIP, and AES encryption modes.
  • A Wi-Fi version of the Zune Marketplace.
  • Web browser (based on Internet Explorer Mobile 6 for Windows CE).
  • Games
  • Unicode Support
  • Equalizer
  • Music, up to 33 hours (wireless off); video, up to 8.5 hours
  • Battery : 3.7 Volt, 730 mAh Lithium-Ion Polymer battery
  • I’ve wanted a Zune for ages so if this is true-it’d be AWESOME 😉

    *Update* Looks like it truly was a rumour, as the Zune HD isn’t available in Europe (or anywhere else for that matter) 😦
