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 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.

Awesome, finally a 64gig model, have been waiting for this for a while now. I have the Zune HD Platinum (32Gig) and it is prett much full (even deleted all my porn from it :( ), i could see me giving this to my brother or mom so they can use it to listen to music and i can get my 64gig. That should future-proof it for a while. The HD series is very responsive and i have had very few problems with it... actually none, 1 problem with the software but i guess thats what i guess for using the newest OS and expecting no bugs. No problems now though and the Zune is fantastic, as was my 1st gen 30gig (still truckin). The only down-side to the Zune HD is that i cant seem to use it with my Altec Lansing Zune dock:(
