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.

If they were pushing it they would sell the Zune worldwide and not just in N. America.

I do not know why MS has decided to produce, what seems to be, an excellent MP3 Player but not sell it outside of N. America. If it were available in Europe I would buy it ASAP.

If it were available in Europe the EU Trade Commission would probably sue them again for something stupid like it being bundled with Microsoft software and apps.

On what grounds, if it were so they would have had to sue Apple by now?

Ballmer gave this reason a few months after the first Zune came out: If we did, we'd lose more money.

Not surprising. People just don't want these. That's why there are so few apps or games available. If people don't buy them, developers don't develop for them. Then people won't buy them, and around it goes.
