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.
No Microsoft Zune for Europe this year
