The guys at Zune fan-site Zune Scene say they've learned the release date for Microsoft's next-gen portable media players. According to an anonymous source "inside of Microsoft," Redmond is gunning for an October 16 release date for the devices.
Zune Scene's anonymous Microsoft insider also says the "Zune 2" photos that leaked back in August are authentic. Those photos showed a large, hard-drive based Zune and several flash-based models, all with an iPod-like control button the source dubs the "squircle." The hard drive-based Zune will supposedly have an 80GB capacity, while flash models will pack either 4GB or 8GB. Thanks to Engadget for the tip.
