Default will these thing be possible for the Zune in new Firmware(specially Zune 80)?

so, i'm about to get the Zune 80. after 1 month of search for the most suitable player for me.
i just wanna know some things:
i've heard that the Zune 80 can't have EQ cuz its hardware doesn't support it, is this true?
can the wifi get more things to do, like surfing the internet or download music(like the archos 605wifi)?
can it support txt, pdf files, or there are any hardware restrictions?
can it record in future firmwares?
more file type support(flac, avi)?
the point of my questions is, can the hardware support these things, or not? cuz if it can then maybe some day Microsoft will add them to the Zune.

The Zune 80 can get a software EQ, I think its not as good quality as a HW one but it will be ok.
Not sure about wifi, txt, or pdfs.
I dont think it can record, i dont see a mic.
Also not sure about video.
I hope most of that comes to it though especially the EQ although its not that much of a difference to me.

No EQ on the latest Zune. They can do it in software but that will eat more battery giving more reasons for the removal.
More codecs can be supported but depends on MS.
Internet browsing is possible but the resolution of the display is not good for doing that much less the input method. Although they can build a basic mobile WiFi store ala Apple.
Recording is possible but depends on MS.
PDF and TXT depends on MS.
In short, most of what you want depends if they implement it on future firmware releases.

that's a good thing, although i'm not a fan of MS, but they want the best for their Zunes, i'll pray for this wish list to come true.
