"The device also has a built-in accelerometer, so it senses when it is moving. This lets you play games and use apps that are controlled by moving the device."

We knew it had the accerometer, but since no existing Zune games take advantage of one this implies there will be a source for ZuneHD games and apps.

Probably, you might just have to wait 2 weeks to a month and pay extra shipping.

I dont think Amazon ships outside of the US, but some merchants though US Amazon will. The "featured merchants" or "marketplace" im not sure what they call it.

Damn, Amazon pulled the page!!!!!!

From what I've seen in a few articles, this will be the international release of the Zune. And jjr, if you decide you really want 1 when it hits, PM me and we'll work out getting you 1 (for the exact cost, including VERIFIED S&H).

That is, unless they DO release it in NZ, then it's all good!!!

Haha - between you lot, there'll be a grey market in device sales - regardless where it is released.

Cheers, Dave.

Wise decision, as the SQ and features are on point.

So Dave, are you the one who told on Amazon? Do you have any idea why the page was pulled?

I'm recommending you talk to the marketing folks and suggest they let loose at least one useful (previously unknown) fact about the ZuneHD each week until the formal release. This forum is getting to the point of being old news. A little spice sprinkled on each week would keep the fire hot.

Lol!!! At least they can give us a small idea of what the battery life MIGHT be. I have high hopes for the Zune HD, and I'll go against my better judgment and early-adopt.

Me? Amazon's page was news all over the web - nobody had to "tell" on them, they told on themselves.

I dunno - Brian (Seitz - @brianseitz on Twitter) seems to be doing a pretty good job of dropping nuggets every now and again. I see EnzoTen put his latest on the ABI front page.

We're not done yet guys. Metrics like these will be taken with final hardware/firmware.

Cheers, Dave.
