Confirmed: Zune is Toshiba… For Now

Next Story

ASUSTek R2H UMPC

is an OEMed Toshiba Gigabeat with additional features designed specifcially for Microsoft. This does not mean that Toshiba will sell the Zune – it will be a Microsoft Product.

This was done to make it in time for a Christmas launch and Microsoft will take over production after that, adding many more models to the line including a Shuffle/Nano-style mini players as well as a high end UMPC-like PMP. The PMP is a “monster” with gaming, video, and music built-in, along with the wireless features we’re expecting from Zune.

The Zune will not have an FM-transmitter, as previously described.
