The new Zune is coming

leave a comment »

In few hours, consumers will get a richer, more connected and more personal entertainment experience and the opportunity to get their hands on sleek new Zune players, redesigned Zune software, and new online services including the Zune Marketplace and Zune Social.  The players – along with dozens of accessories – will be available at retailers across the United States, while the new Zune software will be available for free download at http://www.zune.net.

For the first time, consumers also will have the option to customize their Zune player with laser-engraved designs and personal text through a new Web store called Zune Originals.

As of now, Both Zune.net which says “currently unavailable due to scheduled maintenance” and the Zune marketplace – Zune Originals Store, displays just the Zune logo, which can only mean one thing: update time!  This was about the new Zune which will be made available in a few hours.  What about the existing Zune users?  Existing Zune owners will receive all new software features via a free and easy upgrade, available Nov 13.  So how to do this firmware upgrade to 2.2?

Check out this video detailing the upgrade experience from Jason Dunn – Zune 30 Firmware Update: Old is Made New
