Asking for the Zune: What's the cost?

For some reason - which could be anything from "we don't know how to make them yet" to "it doesn't matter, we make billions every year" - Microsoft have kept a bit tightlipped over what their Zune is going to cost when it eventually limps to market.

Unfortunately, WalMart made one of those now-incresingly-common cock-ups and put a page that should have been in preview live. They reckon a 30 gig Zune will set you back USD248. In the States, which means we'd expect the price on eventual UK launch to be in the £300 range.

Is it just our inbuilt disinclination to Microsoft, or does the thing really look like an iPod's umarried sister?

How odd. Only this morning I described Zune to a colleague as being like the iPod's red-headed stepchild.

It's only just now I read they're making them in black, white... and brown.
