I am definitely buying at least one Zune HD. I might buy two one for my girlfriend and one for me. I really don't like the iPod Touch, and I sure as hell am not paying 100 dollars a month for the iPhone, so it is the Zune HD for me.

It might sell in the US, but you they don't even sell zune's in most shops here in Norway or most of scandinavia for that sake. I have yet to see one in the flesh, Ipods are so popular that the zune gets left behind.

I for one am getting the Zune HD. I could care less for the ipod.
