The Zune 64 is not going to sold in stores. However, it is avalible for preorder or possibly on sale at Amazon.com.

I believe I heard that from Dave here or on Twitter, or on the Zune Insider podcast. I'll look into it.

Zune HD 64 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

Sometimes doing a little Google goes a long way.

It is a pre-order, but it's what you guys have been waiting for, eh?

Too bad it's hitting: This item will be released on August 19, 2010.

I can't find the source, but I'm fairly certain I heard that the Zune HD 64 will not be in stores, only in Zune Originals in any color and Amazon in black.

Yep and this is the same Amazon who had July not so long ago my friend.So doing a lil google doesn't really work does it?My point was we haven't heard from the horses mouth MICROSOFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also being in the uk i need to wait on general release to buy from Ebay unless a kind trusting American would buy on on my behalf and ship it to me..................Peace and love to you all brothers and sisters.

Here's all I could find as far as an "official" response. Click the arrow next to his name for the full context. He never followed up on this.

Cheers, Dave.

Unfortunately Tora75 all you will hear from MS is cryptic dialogs designed to be more confusing than the last. I hope you manage to acquire 1, since it's a goal of yours.

As for ordering and shipping 1 to you, I've done this before for members, but since your in the UK I have no idea what the total cost would be in the end.

I'm just checking into what I can share here, since I'm not sure anything has been formally announced. Will get back to this thread shortly...

Cheers, Dave.

On Amazon: This item will be released on August 19, 2010.
Until Dave advises, I'd bet this is the closest to a real date we have as of now.

Yes, more retailers will be announced in due course, and so I'm not going to scoop those announcements, but the Amazon.com release date and availability should give you good guidance about general time frames and that additional means are coming to pick up a high capacity device.

Cheers, Dave.
