Partial V3 Feature List Leaked. Thanks Fry's!

"A cool new "Buy From FM" feature lets you listen to FM radio stations and tag the songs purchase when you sync with a PC."
So much for a surprise. Fry's has let us in on a few of the cool features we can expect to be announced this Tuesday, including "Device to Cloud", "Channels", and one I've been hoping for for a while, "Buy from FM." It also looks like Games are coming out of beta, and maybe we'll see more details soon. Buy from FM sounds a bit like the deal between HD-Radio and iTunes, which should be a good competing feature for Zune.
It looks like the long-awaited "Marketplace Anywhere" will be coming too, allowing you to buy songs, sync your collection, and download media on-the-go at any wireless hotspot. And if all that wasn't enough, Microsoft's throwing in a blue Zune8 for good measure. Of course, none of this official, and this Tuesday might prove to offer something that will put all these other features to shame. But for now, bravo Zune team, bravo.
