Microsoft have recently cut the prices of their popular Zune HD portable media players, it is however unclear as to whether or not this change is permanent or just a temporary promotion.
The Zune HD 16GB model is now just $190 on Amazon, whereas the 32GB model is now just $250, prior to this the 16GB model would have cost you $219.99 and the 32GB model would have cost you $289.99.
It is thought that other retailers will follow Amazon’s lead and reduce their prices, Microsoft’s own store has reduced their prices but are $10-$20 more expensive then Amazon.
Currently Apple have their iPod Touch’s at $199 for the 8GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model. As you can see the price of Microsoft’s 32GB Zune HD is now better value then Apple’s 32GB iPod Touch.
Will better pricing convince you to choose a Zune HD instead of an iPod Touch?
