Microsoft priced the Zune at $289 to undercut Apple’s iPod Touch 32GB $299 price point. However, today the price of a 32GB iPod touch has dropped to $279 at Amazon (something that almost never happens on a brand new model of ANYTHING from Apple). Strangely, the 64GB model, which doesn’t have a ZuneHD equivalent remains unchanged while the 8GB model is $10 off.
Microsoft…do we hear $269? Going once…going twice
The iPod touch, of course, is still beating the Zune in the Amazon top 10 (below) but not by much.
