Microsoft has finally posted the technical specifications of the Zune HD on the . The device's dimensions are 52.7 mm x 102.1 mm x 8.9 mm (w x h x d), with a weight of 2.6 ounces (74 grams). The Zune HD will ship with the following accessories: headphones, Zune Sync Cable, and three pairs of foam earpiece covers. Battery life is cited as up to 24 hours (wireless off) for music and up to four hours for video, but this seemed a little toward the low-end. We e-mailed Microsoft and got back much better numbers: up to 33 hours (wireless off) for music and up to 8.5 hours for video (charge time is three hours when connected to a PC and two hours with A/C adapter), with the following footnote:

Thanks for the info guys, I will probably wait until I see someone do this before me. But I think it would be a great idea if all zune sync cables were generic usb.
Why do Zunes and Ipod have their own special sync cable and not a generic usb cable? Is it so they make more $$?
