Wired: Hands-On With the Zune HD

Dylan Tweney writes,

"The upcoming Zune HD was the talk of the GDGT launch event in San Francisco last night, and we got a look at the device. First impressions: It's compact, lightweight, good-looking and has a very slick interface.

Microsoft's newest media player has a bright, crisp OLED display that the dark lighting of the nightclub showed off to very good effect. It's fast and responsive: Video looked great on it. Its 480 x 272 pixels are a far cry from HD, but they present a 16:9 aspect ration and they're bright and contrasty, with deep, rich blacks, so you won't mind much. Also, we could zoom and swipe between photos with great speed; the screen never stuttered or paused no matter how quickly we zipped and zoomed the images around. The source of that visual oomph? The Nvidia Tegra chip inside."

Video comes from a comment from ZuneLover20 which also shows a quick shot of the second dashboard update at 1:00.
