Default Adjustable Playback Speed?

Thinking about getting a Zune HD, and have a question about something I would love for podcasts and audiobooks. Does the Zune HD support adjustable playback speed? I don't see it in the desktop app, but it has been supported for a long time in WMP. I consume a bunch of podcasts and audiobooks and like to listen to them at anywhere from 1.2-1.4x speed. WMP is great, as it keeps the tone level (no chipmunk sound).

I'm using a Sansa Clip for my podcasts and audiobooks these days, and while it has speed settings, it doesn't adjust tone so I never use it. I believe the ipods have supported this well for a long time, too.

If the Zune had this, it would make my decision to pick one up a bit easier

Not likely, the previous Zunes were not very generous with customizble options. The P3 however has exellent playback speed controls.

Same goes for the the Cowon S9. (Same as the P3, not the Zune. )

Thanks for disappointing me, but maybe helping my wallet

I'll take a wait and see approach and see how the app and game support goes.
