Zune buying, storage upgrades on the way


Microsoft confirmed several major upgrades to its Zune device in a surprise announcement Monday.

That the new Zune would be a 120GB device is no shocker. Additionally, Zune users will be able to buy and download music from any WiFi hotspot and tag songs heard on participating FM radio stations for subsequent purchase.

The "Device to Cloud" feature lets Zune owners browse and buy from the Zune Marketplace directly. "Buy From FM" lets customers tag and buy songs from the Zune's FM receiver.
