First Official Zune 2 and Zune Flash Photos

We'd seen the new Zune in red, pink and black (or whatever its called) but I was curious about the green model we reported today. Here it is, leaked, along with some better photos. Now, is that a pea green? An army green? An evergreen green? Looks kind of like Master Chief's armor. But I've been playing too much Halo. Click through for the rest.

DISCUSSION

* New Zunes ship in November, date not yet announced.

* All Zunes (including the Zune 30) will have a new, redesigned interface and feature parity. In other words, early Zune 30 adopters will have all the same software features as new Zune 80, 8, and 4 users.

* Additional native video codecs for h.264 and MPEG-4 — users no longer need transcode those file types to WMV.

* WiFi sync to host computer!

* Podcast support! (Sorry, no over the air downloads — sync only.) Podcasts can also be shared via WiFi.

* The 3x3 song sharing DRM has had its three day restriction removed, but users can still only play files three times.

* There is still NO wireless music store.

* The Zune software is all new and rewritten, and is supposed to actually be more than a rebadge of WMP10 now. Friggin finally.

* The Zune music store is going DRM-free, with over 1m MP3 tracks being made available for download. Other details (like which labels, whether there is a DRM-free upgrade path is for users who've bought music with DRM, price differences, etc.) are not yet revealed.
