"Microsoft Corp. is putting the social into digital music, starting this holiday. Today the company announced that the Zune™ digital media player and online service will be available to consumers in the U.S. on Nov. 14, 2006, just in time for the holidays. The Zune device will retail for $249.99 U.S. (ERP) and will create new ways for entertainment fans to connect and share media experiences device-to-device through the use of wireless technology and new software scenarios."

Okay, folks. It's no longer a guessing game. The Zune will launch in the United States on November 14 for $249.99 (trivially discarding previous discussion about Microsoft not being undercut by Apple, since the Zune is priced at 99 cents more than the 30GB iPod). Accessories will range from $19.99 to $99.99, and can be bought individually or as packs (additional details after the break).

Microsoft: "We Won't Be Undercut By Apple"

Posted by Darius Wey in "Zune Talk" @ 05:30 AM



Well, those of you hoping for Zune to be cheaper than the 30GB iPod have a reason to stay positive. Matt Jubelirer, a product manager for Zune, recently stated the magic words: "we won't be undercut by Apple". And David Caulton, who runs the Zunester blog seems to jibe with it all. While not exactly a word-for-word "it's $249 or less", this is one of the strongest hints yet that the iPod won't be beating the Zune on price this Christmas. Oh, and all that buzz surrounding Wal-Mart and its leak? Like I said in that post, take it with a grain. ;-)
