With Microsoft’s decent effort to pull some off iPod market share, it was certain that Microsoft would launch its Tegra rocking Zune HD outside their homeland. Well, guess what? They confirmed to Ars Technica yesterday that Zune HD will be sold only in US. Ok, it’s initially but still.
“For the time being the Zune HD device will remain US only. Right now we are focused on deploying an exciting service in the form of Zune Video to 18 markets. We are looking at potential future hardware experiences for these markets, but do not have anything to announce right now.”
A shocker is all I can say. Zune HD is one of the few devices that has made so many excited and I think by the time Microsoft makes their move to go international, Apple might already have something on the plate to offer its customers. Come on, MS cash in on the opportunity. And fast.
