64GB Zune HD gets a launch date

Earlier this week, DailyTech reported that the 64GB Zune HD made an early appearance on the official Zune website. Although the link to the actual product was inactive, Microsoft’s intentions were clearly made.

Today, Microsoft has officially confirmed the existence and upcoming release of the 64GB Zune HD. According to Microsoft, the new player will launch on April 12 at a price of $349.99. For comparison, Apple’s 64GB iPod touch rings up at $399.

In addition to the pricing and availability information for the 64GB Zune HD, Microsoft also announced that the existing 16GB and 32GB models will each receive a $20 price reduction.

Microsoft just let us know that the 64GB Zune HD is now available to order in Platinum, Black, Blue, Red, Green, Purple and Magenta.

Damn... you almost had it there, and blew it. Please don't take it personally Smartless, cause I think all ayall are crazy!:-) I thought mobiles replaced mp3 players years ago. I also thought the only people buying iPods were Uncles & Grandparents (as gifts).

And didn't Nokia pretty much bury the standalone GPS a couple weeks ago (at least in Europe, but I'm pretty sure Google will be doing the same in the States)? The only thing I thought mobiles weren't gonna replace was digital cameras (because of the tiny CCD's & toy-lenses), and I bet i got THAT wrong since I'm fairly sure they ain't selling like they used to. But even if dc's are still selling like hot-cakes, i'm seriously: you guys still have media players? $300 ones? I must be very stingy AND lazy...

Maybe it's different where you are but mp3 players don't come subsidized by contracts that add up to thousands by the time they're completed.
