Microsoft on Friday released the first specs and pictures of the Zune, the next generation iPod-type device. Here’s a few of the new features they think will help it rise above the others.

  • Built in Wi-Fi
  • 3″ widescreen
  • FM tuner
  • USB connection
  • Zune-to-Zune music, song and picture sharing

Looks cool! No word on release date (before Christmas seems likely) and price (I would guess $199 to edge out the iPod). Give me Windows Vista and a Zune and I’ll be happy. Nice!
