So now that Toshiba is done with the Zune and Microsoft is on their way to making their own gear, they decided to continue with the Gigabeat series. Microsoft are Toshiba are still good friends considering the new Gigabeat will be running Windows Embedded (R.I.P. Windows Portable Media Center).

From the FCC documents we know that this version of the Gigabeat will be rocking b/g Wi-Fi and a 2.4” QVGA 320×240 LCD screen. It will also measure in at 54 x 85.6 x 9.9 mm (2.1 x 0.4 x 3.4 in.) and weigh 70g. The document also states that the device will have 4GB of flash memory. Likely this will change since consumers are already screaming for 8GB flash players.

Photos and internal shots have been omitted from these documents at Toshibeas request, but don’t sweat it, we will have one cracked open for you as soon as we get our hands on one.
