Zune to launch on November 14 with a $250 price tag

Microsoft has announced that its Zune portable audio player will be available on November 14 and will match the price of the 30GB 5.5G Apple iPod. The company also announced that songs will be available for 99c each and a $14.99 monthly music subscription service will also be a part of the package. “On Nov. 14 we’re delivering not only a device, but a shared, social experience that will be shaped by the collective imagination of consumers. We’re infusing the spirit of discovery and sharing into everything we,” said Microsoft’s Chris Stephenson.

As previously reported by DailyTech, Apple's $249 price tag for its 30GB iPod took Microsoft by surprise. The company, which was expecting a $299 price tag for the new iPod, scurried to come up with an alternative pricing strategy in response to Apple.

Microsoft's Zune player features a 30GB hard drive, 3" color display, limited WiFi connectivity for Zune-to-Zune media sharing and a built-in FM tuner. The Zune will also come pre-loaded with a number of audio tracks, music videos, short films and images.





"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
