Microsoft Zune : Will it get here before Christmas?

Microsoft Zune MP3 Player to hit Australia soon Branded as the "iPod killer", much of the portable digital music world is watchfully anticipating the release of the new Microsoft Zune MP3 Player hitting the U.S. on the 14th of November. The initial bruising on the wallet will be around AU$350.

The sad thing is, I haven't heard of when it will be in Australia, although there's talk that it will appear on European shelves early December. This would make a neat Christmas present for music lovers, me included.

Let's break down what makes the Zune so special.

- WiFi Capability: share music wirelessly with fellow Zunians
- 3" Colour LCD QVGA screen: it's bigger
- Built-in FM Radio: when you get bored with your own music files
