The ZuneHD came out today.  Have you heard of it?  It gets pretty good reviews and it costs less than a 32GB iPod touch…well, it did. 

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.
