Following the deconstruction of the brand new iPods last week, iFixit has given the same treatment to Microsoft's new Zune HD PMP.

Of particular interest to those who care about what components the new player is comprised of, it seems it's a Samsung display, Toshiba memory and as is known, an Nvidia Tegra processor.

The iFixit team says: "Microsoft has taken a long time to get to market with this device, and the hardware shows it. It's lighter than the iPod touch, smaller in two dimensions (skinnier and shorter, but 0.4 mm thicker), claims better battery life with a smaller battery, and beat Apple to market with an OLED screen".

The full tear-down, with detailed pics and tons more spec info, is now live over on the iFixit site, with video promised soon.
