From our Zune blog:

Wireless sync is one of the most exciting new Zune features. An industry first*, wireless sync allows Zune players to, well, sync wirelessly with your host PC.

Over your home wireless network, you can sync your Zune whenever you wish.

Your Zune player will also sync automatically whenever it's plugged in - either through a dock, an AC adapter, or a USB cable.

The convenience of wireless sync is even more evident when you consider Zune's new support for podcasts. Wireless sync will make it easier to keep your frequently-updated podcasts, as well as your playlists, pictures, and videos, synced with your PC.

What's more, this new wireless sync will be available not just for new Zune players, but for all of us who bought first-gen Zunes. The capability will be delivered through a firmware upgrade in November.

Thanks, Microsoft, for not leaving us early adopters behind!


*Correction: Not quite a first: the Archos provides wireless sync in its Archos 604 player. Thanks, Palmer. - Edit.

So am I misreading Cesar's post?

"Wireless sync: wirelessly updates content on the device when it is within range of the PC with the Zune Collection on it, or on the same wireless network.  You can start the sync manually or, when its plugged into  AC power, Sync will automatically start after 1 minute of inactivity. This is so the battery doesn’t get drained by the automatic sync."

To me it says you can do a wireless sync without connecting to a power source.

The key word is automatic.  As I understand it, you can still do wireless sync manually when running on battery.  You would have a dead battery pretty quickly if it sync'ed wirelessly automatically on battery.

Hasn't the Archos 604 30GB Wi-Fi done all this and more since August of last year?

I'm not sure this is an industry first.

For a minute I though Steve Jobs wrote the blog, not Harvey.

RD,

Perhaps you missed the part where I threw a jab in at Steve "Mr. Look What We Invented" Jobs.

TND,

I've had plenty good to say about the new Zune.  Of course, one of my favorite features doesn't work like I thought...  The curse of WiFi I suppose.

This is an awesome feature! So really, there's no need to buy a sync cable. All you need is an AC Adapter which charges and will start the sync process!

Thanks - I'll get that corrected.

Yeah its a very cool feature. 

Archos is well ahead of everyone, just that no one knows it.  They beat iPod Touch with the web browser thing too.
