Cesar over at Zune Insider announced last night that new Zune firmware will be released later this month. Update 1.3 will fix a number of issues, but not really add any functionality.
At any rate, this is what you can expect from the new firmware:
The date for the new release isn’t firmed up yet, but the word is that it’ll drop on March 20.
And yes, for those of you wondering, I still use a Zune; and no I am in no way compensated by Microsoft, mentally deranged, an Apple hater, etc—I just like my Zune.
