Default Zune HD 64 GB, Coming April 12th

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1270051683.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It's official - starting on April 12th, you'll be able to order a 64 GB Zune HD from ZuneOriginals.net for $349.99 USD. Microsoft is also lowering the price of the current models; the 16 GB model will be $199.99 USD MSRP, and the 32 GB model will be $269.99 USD MSRP. For all of you who wanted a Zune HD but said you wouldn't buy one until Microsoft offered a 64 GB model, now you have your wish. How many of you will be picking up the 64 GB Zune HD?</p>

Waiting for WP7S at this point, though definitely saddened that the initial release has so many limitations (especially expandable storage). I like the look of that enough that I don't want to invest in a ZuneHD and have it be basically left behind when people are making apps for the phone side of the house. I like the available storage, but currently manage just fine w/ my old 30. If I were to hear that ZuneHD would get some sort of upgrade to allow it to run WP7S apps, I might consider picking one up, but at this point, I figure I'm better off waiting.

I think I will, if I can somehow get my hands on it. Being in Canada doesn't help.

Too expensive for a platform that will be hugely overshadowed by WP7S. I really don't know what they were thinking with this one.

Default Yea!!! Oh Wait!!

Now I can load a bunch of games and apps on the device. Oh wait, MSFT isn't going to support the ZuneHD. Oh well I can fill it up with tons of music from my Zune Subscription. Oh wait, a lot of my favorite artists have been removed from the subscription. Leave it to MSFT to create the coolest media device in history (arguably) and then not support it. Everything Zune doesn't droid does.. lol.

I'm going to stick with my Zune 80. Like the others I am going to take a wait and see what happens with Windows Phone 7 before investing any more in the Zune.

Like the previous poster, I am getting somewhat disillusioned with where the Zune seems to be heading, which is personally frustrating as the Zune has been one of the few pieces of technology that I have loved from the start and use it constantly. There are very few items over the years that I can say have held that spot. Most of my other gear has been swapped out for one thing or another, but my Zune gets used daily and I have loved the Zune pass, at least until artists and albums started dropping off the site :-(
