Photos: Zune 2.0

Can a new design and extra features give Microsoft's Zune the edge it needs? Let's see what we can glean from Microsoft's promotional photos.

Looks like the new Zunes put an emphasis on album artwork, just like their iPod competition. The Zune Marketplace looks like it's ready for an overhaul, too.

We sure wish Microsoft would give this little guy a name to differentiate it from its kin. The lil' Zune comes in 4GB ($149) and 8GB ($199) capacities, in either red, black, green, or pink. Anybody else think the control pad looks like Mickey Mouse?

Place your bets. Which one looks like an iPod killer? The new Zunes come in a black 80GB capacity (left), as well as 4GB and 8GB versions available in four colors.

On the right you can see last year's Zune. Cosmetically, the new Zune players are smaller and use a new, rubberized control pad.

Looks like Zune's software also gets an overhaul. The new interface looks less cluttered and more attractive.

Both the flash and hard-drive Zune feature glass-shielded screens that resist scratches. As on Apple's iPhone, glass screens are a classy touch, although they get smudged quickly.
