Zune HD teardown

dfkaj

Our friends over at ifixit are at it again, how they get these devices so early before release and make a complete teardown in time still amazes us. Today they bring us the latest Microsoft media device, the Zune HD. Some features worth mentioning: The astoundingly thin, 1mm we’re talking, OLED screen. The Nvidia Tegra 2600 processor, hinting at 3D game capability. And finally who could forget the 660 mAh battery. But isn’t that 129 mAh less than the iPod touch? Microsoft’s reply, supposedly the Zune HD is using many more low power hardware solutions in this device. Either way, the competition is on, who will be the victor?

  1. Is it only me or is anyone have having any trouble adjusting their eye’s to the colorful images?
    (The skin thing looks too weird)

    Speaking of the word “Weird” isn’t it weird that “I” doesn’t come before “E” in that “Weird” word?

  2. Its kind of ironic that Microsoft, who bought Danger who makes the Sidekicks for Tmobile, and jome of Windows, uses NetBSD on the Sidekick.

  3. “who will be the victor?”

    apple has already saturated the market with an arguably inferior product every iteration.

    it will be difficult for any other company to take a large chunk.

  4. What does it say about me if I spent the past few minutes recreating the DataMatrix in Paint so that my scanner would recognize it?

  5. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  6. I hate apple so ipods are out of the question and the Zune hd I made this post from is the best media player i have ever seen, my only complaint is that there are only a handfull of apps and no access to the filesystem
