I don't think it's likely to be here on this side of Christmas, and perhaps not even soon after. I'd bet something like 2H 2007... If that.

Hope they're releasing the 60gb version when they do release globally, to make it worth the wait.

Too bad no online shops ship worldwide (except auctions) otherwise I'll be deciding what colours to get now, rather than sit here waiting for the worldwide release announcement.

While you wait, have a read of Chicago Sun-Times's take on the Zune (it's very funny).

"Oh, and the Zune Marketplace doesn't even take real money, proving that on the Zune Planet there's no operation so simple that it can't be turned into a confusing ordeal." LOL

Even though I have some degree of relationship with Microsoft, I have to agree. It's not compelling at all. The fact that

a) it's not compatible with WMP
b) it's not compatible with current MSN Music Store, Urge and Playsforsure platforms
c) the wireless feature does not allow downloads directly on to the device
d) its a U.S. launch only

spells failure...
