Will the zune sell out?

    Does anybody know/think the Zune will sell out?  I want to make sure I get one launch day, and wondering if I need to go stand outside the store when they open.

    If you plan to buy one, what color are you going to get?  I'm going to try and go with brown, and if not brown then black.

    DRM enabled AND not Plays for Sure compatible....

    It already did sell out

    Plus you cannot use wireless to sync.   Initially I was looking forward to Zune but they really dropped the ball on this one.

    I am sorely tempted, if only because I'm in the US the week after launch and I really need a new player.

    I wonder if wireless sync will arrive as an update.

    Until they have a store to lock each country into it won't get launched there.

    So in answer to your original question, it is unlikely to sell out anytime soon.  Especially seeing as no-one outside of the blogosphere, C9 or Microsoft even knows that it is.

    Yeah, how UN-nice of them to ship 2 days after my birthday (I guess I know what I'm not getting for my birthday!)

    Yeah, the marketing hasn't been that great... so I've been telling as many people as I possibly can.  I'm in college, and my marketing teacher always uses the ipod as an example... so I chime in whenver I can do it smoothly... yeah... I'm that guy Cool

    I just really want to see the zune take off.

    Sorry about that. You are correct.

    My take is that a UK launch will occur in 2007 or 2008.
