While rumours of the iPhone Version 2 are circulating all over, and many fans debate the possibility of something being released by Apple for the Christmas season, Microsoft has announced Zune 2.0.  Slashdot has coverage of this release, which Microsoft hopes will revitalize interest in their portable music player.  Zune has just hit 1 million units sold this week, and they need something to make the player more attractive.  Details are relatively sketchy, but there will be new styles and price points for those looking to buy one.

"Microsoft has confirmed the existence and coming launch of the long rumored Zune 2.0 or 2nd generation Zune, and it

appears that Microsoft will expand the Zune family with new styles, sizes, and price points. 'Future Zune products

will feature podcasting support and expanded video support. The Zune will also move into other geographic markets

when Microsoft feels it has an appealing product to offer those demographics. Perhaps most importantly of all, the

representative mentioned that Microsoft will build on the wireless support. Maybe we'll finally have the freedom of

synching our digital audio players via wi-fi. The rep didn't mention anything specific about Microsoft's rumored

answer to the iPod Shuffle. But interesting rumors from sources considered "reliable" point to a very innovative

product."
