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.

Ok Steve. You're a child throwing a fit because you aren't having your way. That's what your OP and this whole thread boils down to. This:


Oh please, if you are going to attempt to insult someone try and do it in a more original matter.

Yes, we get that. But what you don't get or care about, is that there are more considerations going on in business than your needs and wants. Sorry, that's life.


I'm sorry, but how is this my concern? All I want is the Zune, and I wanted it here years ago, not years later (And still waiting).

p.s what's stopping you from E-baying or Amazon'ing one online by the way ? OH that's right ! Australia, a titan of capitalism and trade according to you, doesn't have Amazon.com !


I never utilized the word "Titan" in any of my posts here, now you are merely placing words in my mouth.

We have free-trade agreements, you can see for yourself here: http://www.dfat.gov.au/trade/ftas.html

Our Economy and market structure which shows it's capitalistic nature: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Australia

And lastly, you still don't understand the differences between a world-wide company like Microsoft to a company that deals in only a single country like Newegg or Amazon, which is what I have attempted to point out in my last 2 posts.

Anyway jokes aside, aren't you too busy wrestling crocodiles and stuff to be worried about an MP3 player ?

I thought you were putting jokes aside?

1) If I wish to wrestle a croc, I could at least do it while listening to Kung Foo Fighting.

2) There are no Crocs in South Australia to my knowledge which is where I am located.

3) Hmmm... Croc stew. :P
