    Flash needs to get cheaper 'cause 32GB isn't enough. Although it'll be nice to not have my music skip from the vibrations from my bike.

    Amazon had some last I checked, but really high prices. Might be best to look state-side and see if someone here can help you ship it over.

    Hahah, I know a lot of people haven't even heard of Zune, or think it failed completely and there haven't been any since so it's not surprising to be honest.

    The Zune is a very good PMP, better than an iPod, and I've owned both a touch and a nano. It's just that the iPod has a MASSIVE lead on the Zune, that and the fact that Microsoft haven't released it outside the US, has lead to the low sales :(

    99% of the people that I talk to have never heard of Zune. By the time I end up showing them the device and explaining why it's better than their iPod, they want one, but end up sticking with their iPods because all of their purchased music is DRM-locked to their iTunes account. Only 1 smiley can express my feelings after I hear that: :shadedshu

    I'm considering selling off my iPod and getting a Zune. The only thing keeping me back is cost of unit and accessories to get the same functionality. Getting sick of my iPod freezing from a firmware update. It's never been dropped, just didn't like one of the updates one day.


    We can get the Zune in Canada, it just took us a while to get it. Hopefully the HD gets released here without much delay.

    What functionality are you looking for? BTW, when I went from iPod to Zune, Craigslist made it a literal $10 upgrade, and WELL worth it!

    It's all 3rd party hardware I want. In car FM transmitter and a sound system dock. I wouldn't be too worried about the in car transmitter, I'm sure I can get one of them fairly reasonable. I paid $150 for my Logitech Pure-Fi.
    [​IMG]
    It isn't the greatest system ever but its got 10 hours of battery life while recharging my iPod and playing music, or it can be plugged in AC wise. I use it almost daily at the office, so I'd probably want a replacement right away.


    Past that the only thing hindering me would be whenever Microsoft releases the Zune HD to Canada. I haven't seen any news of Canadian release at the same time as the American one, so I think I might have to wait.

    True. Maybe I'll get Newtekie to pick one up for me when I RMA my video cards through him and have him pack it in the box for the trip back.

    Price was a little higher than stated in the memo... but sticks to within $20 of the prices on the memo.
    MEMO PRICES
    16GB- $199.99
    32GB- $299.99
    -----
    AMAZON PRICES
    16GB- $219.99
    32GB- $279.99

    The discrepancies mean that the Flash Memory isn't the price hogger.. its something else in that device. Be happy that the 32GB is that cheap. You can't get an Ipod Touch for that.

    Cool, then the Zune HD is $100 cheaper than the iPod touch at each price point! Have a source for those numbers?
