Default ZuneHD 64GB not available outside Zune Originals until July 19th?

Amazon is finally listing the 64GB ZuneHD, but its only available for preorder with a release date of July 19th. Why the 3 month gap from its announced release on Zune Originals? I was actually hoping by that time in the summer it would have be out just long enough to be slightly discounted.

Maybe Dave can shed some light on this? Does seem like a very long time to have it in stock at Amazon or other retail outlets.

They probably either have to:

A) coordinate with several retailers, leading to the long wait time, or

B) want to make as much money off of the new model in 3 months

Ya, it has to do with retail pre-order and assortment deadlines. I honestly don't know the specifics, other than that there are set windows that the retailers have for assorting new products and if you miss one due to the launch date of your product, then you have to wait for the next.

Cheers, Dave.
