Hot on the heels of Apple's new iPods and iPhones, Microsoft is revamping its Zune lineup, which previously consisted of a lone 30GB Zune in several colors.
Now with the Zune v2, the long-lost 80GB brother was reunited with the 30GB, while sexy 4GB and 8GB flash cousins also joined the Zune family. Speaking of sexy, the prices are quite sexy as well.
The sleeker Zune 80 is yours for only $250 and has a big 3.2" screen. The smaller cousins sport a 1.8 screen and go for $150 (4GB) and $200 (8GB).
Other highlights include wifi syncing, additional native video codecs, DRM-free music and software updates for all Zunes including the Zune 30 aka Zune Classic.
For the full details, Engadget has the full scoop on the new Zunes (and more pictures) from Microsoft.
Edit: Pretty pictures posted at Engadget and Gizmodo. Gizmodo is recommended since ugly watermarks aren't plastered on the photos. In fact the photo of the Zune collection above is from Gizmodo.
