James, the Zune release manager and he spilled the beans on the next firmware update (Version 1.3). Some things featured in the next update:
- We’re fixing the skipping problem that some users were experiencing – that is, content acquired from Zune Marketplace will no longer skip when played on the device.
- Improved device and software reliability, when it comes to device detection, and improved sync'ing.
- We’ve made some changes to the FM Tuner so it no longer drains the battery when in sleep mode.
