We recently caught wind of rumors that claimed Microsoft would introduce its next-generation Zune portable media players on October 16, but it looks like the company may announce them a little sooner than that. In fact, a new report by Engadget says the players will be unveiled tomorrow.
The site quotes a "trusted source" as saying Microsoft will make the "Zune 2" announcement on Wednesday. With it, Microsoft will supposedly unveil a new firmware update for first-generation Zune players that will bring software and user interface tweaks from the Zune 2s. However, Engadget goes on to say, although the announcement will come on Wednesday, actual products and the updated firmware won't roll out until "sometime later."
