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.

Thank you for proving my point. You did not wait until Zune was a lower price. Yet, you found value from the early adoption and have had four years of enjoyment.


Ah lord666, you miss the point by a mile again.
The point is not the value of getting it when it comes out, to point is the value of $50. If Gadget A starts at 399.99 and Gadget B starts at 349.99 and according to your scenario drops $50, you still save $50. With the Zune I still get more features that does not appear on any apple products, recieve a service I cannot receive with apple, and I can still use songs I bought FROM apple. I'm missing the lack of value.

P.S. - We all know in these forums that early adoption is the equivalent of shiney tax (it's shiney I want it, get charged more).

$400 for iPod
$350 for Zune AND $50 purchase from iTunes

Add the extra Zune features & the unknown is the better buy for your $400 :)
