I have a Zune 120 and don't need anything more. Seems foolish to me to force everyone to go for the high-end option. You'll probably get more consumers to buy your top end product, but I would think far fewer consumers overall. If my Zune broke I'd get something equivalent from someone other than Apple that did the same thing. I don't see myself spending extra money for extra features I would rarely use. I want to use my most kickass device the most, hence I built a sexy desktop PC. Why would I want my "best" tech device to be something that in comparison is weak and small. A plain mp3 player is plenty to get me through whatever boredom I am enduring before I get home to my Desktop or laptop if I am abroad. Hell, I don't even use the video function on my Zune, so even it is more than I need.
So look, Microsoft's Zune HD looks promising. Really promising, even.But promising enough that it shouldn't give the general population anyother choices in the Zune range?
Maybe it's more the lack of promise (as in sales) that the other models have done. Microsoft can afford to keep a losing product on the market for a while, but eventually they got to try and change their image. Despite improvements, the Zune brand is frowned upon by some. But if all people see is the sleek Zune HD then Microsoft can transform the image to a more positive one - even if they only cover a smaller portion of the market.
