These photos claim to show a first-gen Zune running a firmware 2.14 that can purchase and download tracks over Wi-Fi with Microsoft points. They come from the same friendly Zune source that sent us the first photos of Zune 2.0 that some readers thought were Photoshopped. I can't tell if this is merely a first-gen Zune showing just an image of a firmware/download screen, or the true thing. What do you think?
Well what do I think? I think these shots are not "photoshopped" images...If this would be proven a hoax then the hoaxer could've uploaded a JPEG image, which looks exactly like Zune's interface, getting the right dimensions and then playing the photo full screen.
its kinda like the DS system with WIFI both subscription and points are suported, and your account is tied to your zune furthermore, once you download a song of the to go marketplace, you can then send them to other once you have synched back with your PC, copying your downloaded files back to your HD, when it becomes a normal downloaded song.
But I believe the Zune Team got it right this time, giving the WIFI feature something REALLY useful to do... Here in the Philippines, I guess we won't be able to avail the Zune Marketplace downloads over-the-air but I hope we could intergrate the newer WIFI service for local hotspots and wireless signals (maybe transfer photos from a wifi-capable laptop to a Zune, that should be neat!)
If you look at the screen it shows a red note saying 2.1.4 Beta which presumably is the testing stage of this new device...The 472 digit beside the icon is the amount of Microsoft points the user has.
