Snarkier readers may wonder if Microsoft currently has any plans to sell the Zune HD inside the US, after Apple’s recent iPod introductions and price cuts.
“For the time, being the Zune HD device will remain US only,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Ars. “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.”
The Zune HD is expected to launch next week priced at $220 for the 16GB model and $290 for a 32GB model.
