New Zune Features leaked!

Fry's Electronics store in Downers Grove, Illinois

Zune leaks are hot right now. Amazon advance listing of the 120gb last week, and now listing the new Blue 8GB Zune ($150). See product listing

This New slim 8GB Zune®(blue/silver/black) device is good to go with plenty of room for your favorite music, pictures and video. It comes Complete with an FM tuner and buy from FM capabilities1, wireless sync2, Zune® to Zune® wireless sharing3, video playback and more, so you get all that Zune® power in one tight little package. Holds up to 2,000 songs, 25,000 pictures, or 25 hours of video.

The new features are cool, but I’m yet unsure if it will work outside the USA, particularly the Buy from FM (IMO this won’t work for obvious reasons) unless they record all songs streamed from your zune device, log it once you connect your zune to your PC and suggest songs you like. I wish the Games featured would be tightly integrated on the new firmware and software so that installing games would be easier than opening Microsoft XNA Game Studio and other complicated apps.

New Features
