Amazon's Zune HD prices

The player will be available in two flavours: a $220 (£133/€155), 16GB model and a $290 (£175/€204) version with a 32GB storage capacity, Amazon’s US website states. The player hasn’t been inked for release in the UK, yet.

Amazon hasn’t added any technical details to its website, but Microsoft confirmed in May that Zune HD is built around a 3.5in, 480 x 272 OLED screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The player also features an integrated “HD Radio receiver” and an HDMI port, Microsoft said. The 16GB model has a black body, while the 32GB player will ship in a platinum shell.

A shipping date hasn’t been confirmed by Amazon – although it’s widely thought that the Zune HD will be available in North America next month. It’s worth noting that while Amazon says it’s already accepting pre-orders for the player, links for both capacities were currently down at the time we went to press. ®
