One reason for the delay is that Microsoft doesn't yet have a European product czar for the Zune to coordinate a launch. And the recently appointed figurehead for Zune International is just now working to build up relationships in region. Even more telling is that fact that Microsoft's doesn't yet have an infrastructure in place in Europe to provide music online. "We haven’t yet selected a music store provider to build marketplace in the UK, which means we’re way off launch," said Dene Schonknecht, media and entertainment alliance manager for Microsoft.
