ZuneHD is real.. Australia waits for an iPod Touch competitor

Zune HD

Believe it or not there are people who simply won’t by Apple products (choose between the inflated prices or a locked down ecosystem for reasons why). Well Microsoft have just confirmed the long standing rumours about a Zune HD.

This is one sleek device. Dropping the lame squircle in favour of a full touch-screen, a screen that’s OLED with a 480×272 resolution. My question is, will Australians (and other markets outside the US) finally get a practical alternative to the iPod Touch ?

Update
The Zune HD will also feature multitouch and a portable browser based on Internet Explorer.

The other question is of course price.. no details yet, but this is certainly one to watch. Let’s hope for a pricing war between Microsoft and Apple, that should ultimately benefit us consumers.

Strangely there’s still no update to http://zune.net about the ZuneHD.
