Update 3:47 p.m. PDT: CNET News' Ina Fried captured a video hands-on with the Zune HD that actually stays in focus. You can watch her video here.

High-fives to guys at Gizmodo for hunting down a preproduction model of Microsoft's mythical Zune HD. The video below is a bit on the blurry side, but there's also some sharp and exhaustive photos available from both Gizmodo and Engadget.

From the looks of things, Microsoft has really outdone itself on the hardware design. The Zune's OLED touch screen looks beautiful, and the industrial design of the casing is impressive. What a shame we have to wait until fall to see this on store shelves.
