Microsoft to Release Zune 2

Microsoft, the creater of the Zune media player has announced that it will be releasing the second version of the media player. It is believed that the new Zune is to be released on Amazon.com by November 13th of this coming year. This means that if you are a Zune fan, the new version is almost one month away. With the Zune having a competitor such as Apple and the iPhone and new iPod touch - the Zune and Microsoft have their hands full. We cannot say that the generation 2 Zune has use or function, this would be absurd. In fact people may prefer the Zune over an iPod or iPhone. The Zune 2 media player can automatically sync over a wireless network at any time the device is placed in its dock or being charged. So the feature of WiFi music syncing is a plus for the Zune 2. The Zune 2 will also support Windows Media Center TV recordings. Therefore the Zune can automatically import television recordings made through the Media Center of your Windows Vista computer. The Zune 2 will also support its own social networking site for Zune owners, which will be called "Zune Social". It will be quite tough for the Zune 2 to be as popular as the iPod or iPhone although the Zune 2 seems to be a decent media player and should keep Microsoft somewhat up to date with current media player technology, but as well all know with technology - this won't be for too long. Therefore we should probably expect a Zune 3, or at least an updated Zune 2 not too long from now.
