Microsoft's 120GB Zune: Europe bound?

A picture of the 120GB Zune appears in the FCC’s documents and it looks identical to the existing 80GB black Zune, which was launched by Microsoft back in October.

The appearance of a 120GB Zune in Federal Communications Commission (FCC) documents isn’t proof that the player will appear in the UK, because Microsoft’s pushed back the player's European launch several times already.
