Zune Filling Stations Coming Soon?

Microsoft Media Chief, Chris Stephenson was at the Midem Music Expo in Cannes and he was suggesting that Wi-Fi “filling stations” may be in the future for the Zune. The idea is generally similar to that of the iPod kiosks, but uses WiFi to connection.

Ideally a service like this would work the same way that the DS Download stations work and may allow the 3day/3plays rule with Zune’s entire library and hopefully also allows you to download the songs via the “filling stations”. But the only disadvantage is that you probably would rather download the track on your PC than go to a certain place to download the song you were looking for.

It really isnt something that is hard to implement with the current hardware of the Zune. Sandisk has already implemented this with Sansa Connect and their service accually allows you to download via any Wireless connection. Ir may accually be more beneficial for Microsoft to enable WiFi connections via any router than to set up station. Or atleast putting these machines in places like Starbucks, public transit system and malls.
