A link for the 64GB Zune HD had popped up on Microsoft's website
Microsoft will soon launch a 64GB Zune HD

When Microsoft first announced the Zune HD, one of the things that left many of us scratching our heads was the fact that the portable media device wouldn't launch with a 64GB option. At the time, it was well hypothesized that the third generation iPod touch would ship with such an option -- it did -- leaving Microsoft without an effective counterpunch.

Six months after the Zune HD launch, it now appears that Microsoft is finally getting around to adding a 64GB model to its Zune HD lineup. Engadget got word that a link to the 64GB model has been added to the official Zune website. However, the link is currently not active meaning that Microsoft probably isn't quite ready to make an official announcement.

Current MSRPs for the 16GB and 32GB Zune HDs are $219 and $289 respectively, although retailers like Amazon.com have them listed for a low $169 and $239 respectively. For comparison, Apple's 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch models feature MSRPs of $299 ($258) and $399 ($343).

Microsoft's Zune HD features an NVIDIA Tegra HD processor, 480x272 OLED display, 720p video output, and an HD radio receiver.

Canada doesn't have the ZuneHD, MS gave our market the finger with the HD. Microsoft launched a great product and then mega-failed to sell it to the other 6.5B people that have access to the iPod.

I'm aware of that, sucks pretty hard! Still you got the original Zune at least, which is more than we have had yet. :P
Still, things might change, you guys might eventually get the Zune HD yet.
