First shot of the Zune HD Marketplace appears

Summary:The Zune HD should be coming in a couple of months, rumored to be available 8 September, and as the launch gets closer more and more details start to leak out. The latest news has a Zune HD Marketplace image being passed around for people to consider. While it doesn't look like anything revolutionary, tough to tell from a single photo, it does look quite slick like most of the Zune interface.

Engadget posted an image they found on Twitter (seen on the right) that shows the future Zune HD Marketplace on a Zune HD device. While the picture may not show a whole lot of what we can expect, Adam over at Zune Thoughts wrote up a few thoughts to consider regarding this new on-device Marketplace layout.

The Zune HD should be launching on 8 September so we shouldn't have to wait much longer to get our hands on a Zune HD and check out the store for ourselves. My Zune 4GB is getting a bit old and the Zune HD is looking like a nice alternative that I may just have to check out.
