Here is a quoted version of the news article as of earlier today:
Microsoft carries on the Zune HD game of leapfrog with the Apple's iPod touch and is going to make an announcement regarding its 64GB Zune HD as well as lowering its costs on present models.
The 64 GB replica would mostly go on sale from April 12 for $349.99, approximately $50 lower than the 64 GB iPod Touch that Apple released previous September.

What are your thoughts everybody? I think the timing is right and that the short but immediate hype it will get will be better than the continual drawn out hype of the apple products we generally see.
Also it is about time because 64 gb is much needed for the hd videos I am currently having trouble fitting into my Zune. I already bought some cases and chargers for mine ahead of time from www.zunehd64gb.com
but I dont think they will be selling the actual 64 gb version of the high def model. I think that is will only be sold on zuneoriginal- not positive.
With more information I get I will keep you all updated.
