Leaked Image of Zune HD  (Source: WMPoweruser)
Zune HD reported to get HD Radio tuner, multi-touch

There is no doubt that the dominate player in the market is the Apple iPod family. With the massive success of the iPod, many other major electronics makers followed with their own music players, including Microsoft with its Zune.

The Zune proved to be not nearly as successful in the market as the iPod, but Microsoft is hanging on and introducing new models to try to woo shoppers to its brand. What are rumored to be images of a new Zune called the Zune HD began circulating last week.

Neowin reports that it can confirm that the pictures circulated last week were from an internal Microsoft promotional video. The device is reportedly referred to internally as the "Zune v4 powered by HD" .

The screen is made from glass and the back of the device is aluminum. Features of the Zune HD include multi-touch screen and wireless connectivity. The device is reported to be shipping later this year in 16GB and 32GB capacities.

The player lacks any front controls with all navigation being done by the touchscreen and HDMI out is integrated to allow HD content to be watched on TVs. Presumably the Zune Marketplace will be updated with HD content to go along with the new player. The FM tuner inside the Zune HD is claimed to get an HD radio update as well. A new line of accessories will follow the introduction of the new model along with possibly dock accessories and limited edition colors.
