No word yet. Unlikely though.

I would disregard this article.
"Microsoft Zune HD will provide 8G, 16G, 32G, 120G, and many other versions, to support the memory card expansion"

Many other versions?
Memory card expansions?

Just don't pay any attentions to this site, that would be my advise.

I agree w/gregzx, as they even stole engadget's photo's and tried to claim the credit. I think EnzoTen mentioned the same thing in another post as well.

It's a stock stereo on a Lexus IS250 with Bluetooth, tied into the nav system, and it also has a center console with a power jack and aux in. So I was thinking of getting a Bluetooth adapter to put in there permanently that would auto-sync with an mp3 player, so that the car's Bluetooth and my phone wouldn't be affected by the player. I also just learned that it reads mp3 and wma files off of CDs, so that's what I'm doing now before I buy a portable player.

"480 800 high-resolution", "3.6 inches"
These are defiantly untrue. The screen is 3.3 inches, with a resolution of 480 by 272.
"30 hours of music playback or 6 hours video playback"
This is unlikely, it should be a lot higher.
Don't trust this site. It even has a MSN logo...

The linked site was right about the Tegra processor. June 3 was long before anyone else had that info. I'm still holding out for Bluetooth 2.1 or better.

Coincidence? I mean there were rumors about it before. The site just looks very fishy.
Besides, why would Microsoft want to implement blue-tooth? It has wireless, which can get internet and do what blue-tooth does. Honestly, wireless is more practical than blue-tooth, and most devices should use it instead.

Because there are thousands of bluetooth products out there to take advantage of it. Because the iPod Touch now supports bluetooth headphones. Because the other 3.3" touchscreen players (Iriver SPINN, Cowon S9) all support bluetooth headphones.

I believe there is one pair of WiFi headphones out there you can buy, along with one device that can send music to it over WiFi. Yet I personally own 4 different brands of bluetooth headphones, have a philips bluetooth speaker dock, and at least one bluetooth adapter that fits any iPod speaker dock. A ZuneHD with Bluetooth would get far more use from me than it's WiFi feature will, unless of course Web radio will play back via bluetooth headphones.

WiFi headphones are more for phones.

I think you're confusing WiFi with wireless. Bluetooth wireless is what is used in 99% of mobile headsets. WiFi is normally a networking technology. Each can do both, but they were created to fill individual niches.

Everything in the same price/feature range now has bluetooth. It's been suggested that in development the competition was studied carefully and in depth.

Samsung P2 and P3. Best Bluetooth features period.
Cowon S9. Bluetooth headphones.
iPod Touch 2nd gen and later. Bluetooth headphones (crappy implementation so far).
iRiver SPINN. Bluetooth headphones.

The Archos 3 and even cheaper touchscreen players are including FM transmitters to send music wirelessly to any nearby FM radio including the one in your car and the one in your home stereo. I'd take this if there is no Bluetooth.

I know it's too late for them to change the hardware, but am certainly hoping the radio chip in them that does WiFi and HD radio also has bluetooth as an option.

I really hope it does, I also need streaming to the car stereo. It would also be cool if it had as much functionality as the Samsung P2/P3 does.
