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.

Yeah, app/game selection are a shortfall, but the Zune audio sounded much better to me using the same headphones. Is there an iPod dock for 720p out to TV when traveling? Nope.

I use my 32GB for audio/video/podcasts and the occasional web/Facebook app and I love it. The UI is excellent, the screen is great, and performance with the Tegra is quite snappy. I wanted a music/video player, not a portable game/internet device with so-so audio (IMO) and lower-res screen. I bought the device best suited to my needs. I'm getting a smartphone this summer anyway.
