Microsoft readies Zune Firmware Update 2.3

The Microsoft Zune team plans to soon release firmware version 2.3 for the portable multimedia device. The download isn’t up yet, but I’ll be updating this newspost when it does go up. The update is not a major one, meaning no new features will be added. It does, however, address a battery issue that a minor amount of Zune 30 and Zune 80 users have been experiencing. More specifically, the problem occurs when users suspend their Zune hard drives by holding down the play/pause button – in some cases the battery continues to drain. The firmware update will also reportedly improve device recognition as well as stability and reliability during syncing (both wirelessly and while connected to a PC). Update: Download is available.
