Several reports today claim that Nvidia has confirmed the use of its Tegra platform in Microsoft’s Zune HD.
The rumors have been flying around for hours and PC Perspective claims to have known since speaking with Nvidia back in June, at Computex but was unaware that people might actually want to know that Tegra has its first major design win.
The Zune HD packs a 3.3-inch (16:9) OLED, HD Radio, HDMI out supporting up to 720p, WiFi (with Microsof’s Internet Explorer, of course) and the all important accelorometer. We keep saying if Microsoft were to add a phone to this device we'd be all over it and now that its got Tegra under the hood, we're even more disappointed it's just a regular old PMP.
That said, coupled with Nvidia’s graphics, we’d say the Zune HD is going to be a huge step up from some of the older Zunes. Anyone (besides us) interested?
