More Zune HD details
Expected to hit stores Sept. 15, the new Zune HD model features an iPhone-like touch screen, Internet browser and high-definition video.
The 16-gigabyte model is making its debut at $219.99, compared with $299 for the 16-gigabyte iPod touch. The Zune's 32-gigabyte model is set at $289.99, while the comparable iPod touch is priced at $399.
And while the earliest iterations of the Zune were mocked in some quarters for their relatively bulky design, the newest Zune will boast a sleeker, edgier aspect, according to images posted on a company Web site.
