Kin and Zune HD are… kin, when it comes to chipset

Here’s a little smidgen of info that escaped the announcements and hands-on today. The specs page at is a bit… non-literal, so there’s not a lot of information on what model of CPU it’s running, what amount of RAM, and so on. But we do now know that they’re Tegra-based and likely share a fair amount of hardware DNA with the Zune HD. That doesn’t mean you can expect Zune apps and games on there — but it does mean decent graphics acceleration. And it also means they know the hardware and can tune it however they like — to enhance battery life, for instance.
