Default Zune HD

Hey,

Does anyone know if the Zune HD will be available in Canada?

I've been looking around the web for a straight answer but couldn't find one. Online retailers in the US are already taking pre-orders and it seems that their Canadian counterparts have no mention of the Zune HD whatsoever.

It also seems that the old Zune is not available in Canada anymore after taking a look at places like BB, FS and Dell.

I am looking at getting one too and Amazon.com should be your best bet as they should ship it to Canada.

Old zune isn't here anymore cause he is not in production. Will probably strike back after the Zune HD release. I think yes it will be available in Canada but like everytime a few month's after the US release. If they want their store to rise up a little they have to ship the zune almost everywhere. Be patient it will come to us.

Ask for more.

I think it shouldn't be far off the US date. Seeing as the Zune HD is going worldwide this time, there's no reason to confine it to the US for a long period of time.

Though I remember buying my Zune 8GB off eBay since they didn't come up to Canada for quite a while. And well I'm looking at getting a Zune HD around Christmas time, be it online or in-store.

It's a great looking player IMO and it appears to be built really nicely. Looks like it's all metal construction just like my current Zune giving it a nice solid feel. And hopefully with it's Tegra power, there will be some decent games and apps released for it.

And no, I'll never, ever buy an Apple product.

My 80 GB zune have done a really great job. I get it the day it was release in Futureshop at 3:15 the release hour, the first one sell's in est canada is mine:) changed under warranty from a Archos 60GB. It's still work fine, thebattery is getting tierd but I can live with it. Only for this, I will keep this player for ever! and for sure buy a new Zune HD the second they come out here! Maybe will ask my ex-coworker at Futureshop to take the first one for me 8-) that would be nice again:P
