Ars Technica just got their hands on the new Zune and posted a preview of its features.  Some things are nice to see, like the availability of apps for those who picked one up when they first went on sale, the obvious lack of support for third party apps is perhaps not so nice.  The 480 by 272 OLED screen was a definite winner.   Drop by for the preview, they promise a full review soon.

“The Zune HD goes on sale today, and the firmware for the new device should be available by the time you read this (initial devices were shipped without the needed firmware, making them all but useless until hooked up to a PC). Hopes that Microsoft might offer support for the Mac or for Linux machines didn’t pan out (and were always a long shot), but the Zune does have a few slick tricks up its sleeve.”
