Will the release of the Zune HD see Microsoft able to finally make some serious inroads into Apple's market dominance? While that's not a question I am even going to attempt to answer (I'm sure you can theorise plenty on your own), I can point you in the direction of some of the numerous stories published about the newly released player today. Naturally, several sites have already had hands-on time with the device, including engadget, gizmodo, c|net and ars. Initial impressions are generally pretty positive it seems. It is also now traditional for any big new gadget release to get the full dissection treatment, so you can see just what hardware is tucked away inside (such as that NVIDIA Tegra chip), who assembled it and where it was sourced. As with the recent iPod updates, iFixit has the full teardown posted already. The release of the Zune HD also sees the Zune software bumped up to version 4.0 and some new features added, which you can grab from the official site and give a spin for yourself.
