Is That a Zune HD in your Pocket? No, It’s the MSI MT-V660!

ZHD imposter Is That a Zune HD in your Pocket? No, It’s the MSI MT V660!

Oh MSI MT-V660, did you think we wouldn’t notice your menu button? The plastic cover at the bottom? Your sharply tapered edges? You can put all the mirror like shine you want on those edges, but it’s not gonna fool us. You’d have to be blind—or really not care that much—to not notice the similarities between MSI’s new MT-V660 and the Zune HD.

The MT-V660, which is powered by the Rockchip RK2806 (no Tegra to be found here), features a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 touch screen, A/V out, and supports plethora of codecs. The V660 will also feature cool apps like a calender, calculator, and uh, an ebook reader.

Will Microsoft take legal action? Perhaps. They need the practice, since we’re pretty sure it’s the first time this has happened. Although, they should really just be happy someone finally copied a Zune.

i wouldnt consider this the first copy of the zune, just look at the the 4th gen ipod nanos and compare them to the zune 4, 8, and 16 devices: long, rectangular, large screen, docking port and headphone jack on the bottom. the only real difference is that the nano looks smoother, has a smaller hold button, and uses the click wheel and itunes

Not a copy at all… Just look at the audio jack it’s on the right side of the device not the left :P lol MSI

spk282, I think that the graphic is just a mirror image. The one on the left is indeed a Zune HD. The one on the right (note the USB slot on the side rather than the bottom) is the MSI one. Definitely a copycat, but not to the extent of making a mirror image player.

Well… Is it any good? Not that copying is a good thing, but in some cases the knock off is better than the original.

Syndrome ; Tho , this knock off has a less kick-ass exterior design than the Zune. Besides codec support , and until more information is released , I don’t see people getting this over the HD just yet.

Haha this was funny. Considering that this is a “copy”, I’d say they did a pretty good job xD well, for the exterior anyways…..pretty sure the insides are completely different.

Lol’d at: “they should really just be happy someone finally copied a Zune.”True. XD

SWEET! Considering I still can’t get a fuc*ing Zune HD up here in Canada I might be able to get this KIRF product instead.What’s the price monsieur?

Tobey on December 18, 2009 8:19 PM

Sorry Canada, no word yet on release dates or price…

Isn’t MSI supposed to use Ziilab’s ZMS chip? Thought they are partners?

Well, it could be the chance for non-US guys to get a (semi-) zune finally.
