That's a decent price for leather. I'm actually interested in silicone cases. I wonder how many we'll see at launch.

I think even if a 60GB version wasn't ready for sale yet, it would do Microsoft good to let its consumers know now that it's coming. Right now, their tight-lipped nature on everything appears to be doing more harm than good.

Nothing is going to piss consumers off more than purchasing a 30GB now, only to find a 60GB released months later. That dissatisfaction may be enough to push them over the edge and look at another company's offerings the next time round.

I hope the rumours are true. 30GB just isn't enough if you want music and video.

Are you going to hold off on getting a Zune now that you've heard about the 60 GB unit?

I won't buy a Zune unless there is a 60 GB model available. Like Sage said, 30 GB is not nearly enough room for my music, let alone adding video. This is welcome news (if, indeed it is more than just a rumor).

I recently spotted an add for a car dock that said it works with the 30 and 80 gig zune. that would be great, we would have the ipod killer on our hands.

Well, I would just about bet anything that it's not a rumor. You know its just a matter of time. Hopefully not too long before they start adding to the lineup.

As an early adopter (something I don't normally do), I would not be alienated if MS continues to support the 30GB with firmware upgrades, new features, etc., after they release a 60-80GB. I would be more likely to update to a larger, newer Zune when the time comes if they support their original device. That would show they are loyal to the customers that purchased their product despite the bashing it is getting right now.
