um, why is "bags" in the title of this news piece? You make it sound like NVIDIA is backing out of the deal, not confirming it....unless you mean "begs", but that doesn't make sense either...

It means they got it, obtained it. To that effect.

Yeah, I guess my point is one shouldn’t use a idiom in the title of a news piece…since it can go either way

Microsoft can't make a cell phone and continue selling cell phone operating systems. I'm fine with a PMP and this thing looks very very awesome. I'm just curious as to what kind of games this thing will be able to play and where they will be coming from.

It's in the bag! It's in my bag too as soon as it is available. Oh wait.. I already have a multimedia player that also has a PHONE built in. Im sure this toy will be nice though.

Would be nice if this had Windows Mobile allowing the ability to load apps (other browsers for example). This is of course competing against the iPod touch (of which i have one and enjoy using it). Cant wait to see some reviews.

They need to add and HD camcorder to it, so it can compete with Flip and other mini HD camcorders. I'm buy that! But make it 1080p (as RCA is coming out with one)

I actually like the Zune software, but I do agree with you. I would wish that they give users the capability of treating the device as if it were an external storage device. That way you could just drag music and crap over using Explorer if you don't want to install a proprietary software on your computer.

This thing looks amazing and will be a very nice upgrade from my Zune 80. I'm just really surprised this is the first Tegra device. Saw the technology a while ago. Wonder why it took so long to come to market?

I might pick this up when it becomes available, I too wish it had a phone feature as I need a new "smart" phone. :\

It'd be great to be able to use Zunes on Linux. Not that I don't have a dual-boot, but still, it'd be nice.

Very interested. Have not made up my mind if I am going to buy one or not. Might wait till well after its release into the wild and see what the rest of the animals:)  think of it first before plunking down the cash.

If this was a phone, I'd def get it. I'm happy with my 120GB Zune 3 for now.... although that internet is pretty awesome. The Wifi on all the other Zunes is pretty useless imo.

never in my life have I seen or heard the term "bag" used in any way other than the seecond use in this sentence. That may be a regional thing though, like "hella".

I think the Zune HD could just be a test to see how many people are interested. If it sells decently I can see MS putting a phone in it, hell they may actually have the software and hardware made and just waiting to see what happens with the Zune HD. Also my other thought is that the phone will use Windows Mobile 7 which I think will be a better OS than what the Zune is using. A phone will have to run a ton more apps so I think a simple music player running what ever OS the Zune us running 6.1, 6.5, and it'll just do what a media player does, nothing more. WM7 will hopefully be the Windows 7 of the smart phone and look nice, be fast and have good multi-tasking. We'll see, its just a theory I have.

The device to beat is Archos 5. The 5 is perfect for viewing movies -- light, fantastic screen, quick startup, great battery life, and usable (if not great) browser.

Standalone music players are so last decade. Seriously, what's the point microsoft. Make an all in one device like the iPhone. At the very very least make an app store, give Zune WiFi/3G so you can download files, vidoes, games, movies and music from the App Store wirelessly.

So one wants just a standalone music/video player that does little else anymore. We want an all in one device that we can do everything we need to with, from recording video to making phone calls, to GPS, to downloading music and movies and watching them right then and there. But I guess being behind the curve is what microsoft is all about.

yes to the guy above, but i do think that microsoft is working on a phone version, only it is easier to make the music player first.
to me, a good move by microsoft, iPhone 3G S is so tempting since i'm avoiding apple. :D

You can't say "last decade" when the current decade isn't over with. Unless there was a commercially successful mp3 player in the 90s I didn't hear about?

I know I'm getting a ZuneHD. Currently have an 80-gig Zune which I mainly use with an old CD stereo system since my 2-yr-old son killed the CD changer mechanism, trying to play a plastic coaster in it :) .

I just wonder if MS doesn't offer a phone version, whether a 3rd party could make a 3G attachment for it.

If not, then another suggestion is to include the MSN direct features (realtime traffic, weather, stock, news headlines, etc updates) on it for those times a WiFi connection is unavailable, since it will access HD radio anyway.

@ IH8U
I totally agree. It's been 3 years since the Zune has come out and they have yet to include it in a software update. I love my Shure SE110's but they're a little weak when it comes to bass. Having an equalizer would fix that problem quite nicely... sigh.
