Default 64 GB Zune HD Teased on Zune.net

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zunehd/default.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/...ehd/default.htm</a><br /><br /></div><p>"The link's dead now, but there's no mistaking the appearance of a Zune HD 64 on the official Zune website. Hey Microsoft, got something you want to tell us?"</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1269922089.usr495.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>Well, it's about time. Ever since the device launched in the fall, there have been rumors of a 64 GB model. It looks like much of the speculation about it coming out in time for the spring update is proving true, as the Zune.net site showed a Zune HD 64 today. It was quickly taken down, but it's likely to be back up again soon when it's offically announced.</p><p>I've been saying for months that I was going to hold off getting an HD until the 64 GB model came out. But now that Windows 7 is on the horizon, I'm considering just waiting for my next mobile phone upgrade. What do you all think?</p>

Woo hoo!

...though given that Zune will be in Windows phone 7 devices, and all those devices will have 3.5mm headphone jacks, I might actually start using my phone as an MP3 player again (a practice I gave up years ago). On the other hand, I don't know that any WP7 device will have 64 GB of storage.

Yeah even though I have a capable smartphone, I really like having a device dedicated to music. The iPod app on my iPhone feels tacked-on, and only trivially integrated into the platform (it feels like another application than a top-level priority. I'm excited that the back button on WinPhone7 works so well for going back into applications).

And I know there isn't really any 64 GB phone right now, but a 16 or 32 GB version will work fine for taking with me most places. Plus I figure there might even be a 64 GB phone by the fall.
