UK To Wait For Zune Till 2009

The Zune has been a big success in the US. UK consumers will have to wait till 2009 for the Zune, it seems. Reports from France suggest that the launch of the Zune MP3 players in Europe has been deferred to 2009.

Earlier sources had suggested that Microsoft was to launch the Zune in the UK sometime this year. However those waiting for the Zune will have to wait a bit more as the popular MP3 player from Microsoft will be launched in the UK only in 2009.

Both American and Canadian consumers now enjoy the second gen Zune players. According to Les Echos, Microsoft is waiting for third generation sophistication before it invades the UK with the Zune.

Since Microsoft has made no official statement on the delay, the cause of the delay is unclear. Microsoft has referred to much of the reports as rumors and speculation. So for now British Zune lovers will have to do with their iPods, Zens, cowons and Archos.
