Zune rumours or news has been quiet for sometime recently, however filtering through the web are talks that a Microsoft employee has spilled the beans on the next Zune.

Even though it's not yet available in the UK, from the information available it seems as though the next Zune, will not only be be due later this year but will be a flash version. Apparently though, there will be little difference to the original.

The outspoken employee has said the full-sized Zune will look and feel similar with its doubleshot plastics, but will be a bit slimmer. While the new flash device will come with a screen taking up to 75 percent of the face.

It's features are expected to be the same, with it's WiFi capability. Whether these new models will make a real difference is to be seen.

We will of course keep you posted.
