The Microsoft Zune 2 officially goes on sale tomorrow morning, so for all the anti-iPod people in the audience — I know you’re out there — here is a slightly early preview of what the final user interface looks like. Zune Thoughts somehow managed to find the correct firmware for the multimedia player ahead of schedule, unlocking all of its key features and functions.
In the two demonstration videos below, you’ll see how you go about setting playlists and adjusting all the other settings. The Zune Pad appears to be the highlight of the package, because it could be even more intuitive than the click wheel on the iPod. Heresy, I know, but the interface is certainly better than the first Zune.
Looks pretty nifty and intuitive.
