  • HDMI Connection to stream straight to your TV
  • HD Radio.
  • Web Browser.
  • WiFi compatible, with wireless marketplace.
  • Released, early fall.
  • International Release
  • Home AV packs, Car packs, Charge packs.

Microsoft are getting rind of the squircle in favour a full multitouch device and they have suggested that some new touch-friendly apps and games would be released.

The device will boast an IE-based, customized browser, but little else was said in the way of software.

Zune integration is coming to the Xbox and Xbox Live, as the Zune marketplace will step in to replace the current Live video resources, expanding the library and offering all kinds of new perks.

It is also believed that the Zune will be released internationally!
