Zune Canada Launch Info

Microsoft this morning at last confirmed the launch information for the Zune in Canada, the first launch of its music players outside of the US. The devices will be available as of June 13th and will include a slightly different lineup than in the Zune's home country: while keeping the new red Zune 80, the Canadian catalog will drop the less popular green Zune 4 and 8 models. Microsoft also has no immediate plans to launch the Zune Marketplace in the region but has not provided an explanation.

Prices should be similar to or better than those in the US, with the Zune 4 and 8 shipping in black, pink, and red trims at $140 and $190 respectively. The Zune 80 comes both in the new red trim and the original black for $250. The Zune Social network is already online, while the necessary Zune 2.5 software is also available; Microsoft has made no mention of whether its custom Zune Originals engraving service will open to Canadians.

    Too Late!

    Sorry Bill, but you're too late! With the iPhone coming in June, who would want a Zune? Please Microsoft, don't send us your garbage.
