No UK Zune HD, says Microsoft

Only North Americans need apply

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Microsoft’s existing line of Zune players may finally be available in the UK - at least from unofficial suppliers - but the software giant has confirmed that its new HD model won’t arrive in Blighty anytime soon.

“For the time being the Zune HD device will remain US only," a spokesperson for Microsoft said this week.

But the Microsoft rep steered clear of ruling out non-North American Zune HD shipments altogether.

“We are looking at potential future hardware experiences for these markets, but do not have anything to announce right now," the spokesperson told website Ars Technica.

Microsoft’s Zune HD is currently available Stateside in two capacities: 16GB and 32GB, priced at $219 (£131/€150) and $289 (£172/€198), respectively. ®
