The Microsoft Zune player was launched in November 2006 in the U.S. but it's still not available in Europe and according to Steve Ballmer Europeans will have to wait until a least 2008 if they really want a Zune:
Steve Ballmer now said in an interview with the German Wirtschafts Woche (via Heise) that the Zune launch in Europe is canceled for autumn 2007. He does not give a new date and blames the delay on the fact that MS is still loosing money on the Zune.
In October 2006 a MS spokes person already said in the UK that the Zune might not launch before 2008.
Microsoft expects to sell 1 million Zune players by of this month. It is also anticipated that Microsoft will launch new Zune player models for Christmas later this year.
