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.

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2352882,00.as... I really don't see why anyone would buy this over the iPod touch (unless you really hate Apple). The Touch has way more overall value, on any objective comparison.


Wow real in depth comparison you posted there. A HALF PAGE article with barely any head to head comparisons. It's a goddamn opinion piece, not an "objective comparison".

Yeah I love how they completely ignore the fact that you can't use either device without the proprietary software suite. And sorry Apple, but the Zune software stomps iTunes into a bloody pulp.

iTunes, at least the Windows version, is one of the worse excuses of software I have ever seen. I can't believe millions of morons slave a decent media player to such a piece of shit front end program. It's an abomination. And in typical Apple fashion, the PC version runs about three times slower than the Apple version on better hardware. For no reason !

In fact, forget the device. The iPod loses hands down simply because of iTunes alone. And please, I have extensive experience with both, don't waste your time arguing with me about it.
