Zunepass To Be Made Available In More Countries

"Joe Belfiore (Corporate Vice President of WP) mentioned, while enjoying the Mango Twitter integration, that there are plans in the works to expand the Zune services along with speech and more."

According to a tweet by Microsoft's Joe Belfiore, Zunepass and a few other Windows Phone 7 services will soon be available in a few more countries. This is good new as Windows Phone adoption rate hasn't exactly been stellar. Hopefully the availability of more Windows Phone 7 services in additional countries will be able to spur more interest in the platform.

For you users that are not in the US/UK, what services would you like to see?

European Zune in Q4 2007?

"Zune may not be living up to its hyped iPod killer status as of yet, but Microsoft is still determined to launch the media player in Europe, perhaps by year’s end. "The industry moves in this sort of Christmas to Christmas cycle. So you can expect that there will be more devices, more features in the market at that point," Microsoft’s marketing director Jason Reindorp told Reuters. "Our next round of introductions will probably be in time for the holiday of this year.""

A Q4 introduction of Zune into Europe (as late as it may be) is definitely a step in the right direction. If Microsoft wants the Zune to achieve greater market penetration, it needs to be more globally accessible. That's simply one area the iPod currently has an edge in.
