Zune to Europe

by krootdude / September 16, 2008 3:01 AM PDT

I am a faithful Zune user living in Austria (central Europe) and I am having difficulties downloading/updating my nifty little Zune 80GB. What I want to ask is: Does anybody see the zune coming to Europe in the near future? In my opinion there would be a great market for the Zune here. I have met a lot of disappointed iPod users here, who would love to have a Zune.

Hi all,
I bought a Zune a few months ago knowing that I couldn't get access to the marketplace, but sure that there must be a way.
I spent a few hours researching a way to get it done and I have a very simple solution which I've written up in this blog post.
If you're outside the 'States now and want access to all the Zune goodies, have a read over here:

... but those are way more hoops than I'd like. I really would like to try a Zune with the full range of services - and I do have a US credit card, but the IP (presumable) geolocation on top of that makes it pretty useless to me. I was wondering about the IP situation, and it was great to stumble across a post which answered this.

A great shame - and if we get it when MS apparently plans it, I believe we're looking at the end of the portable media-only-player market as we know it. Perhaps they're looking to unleash the Zune Phone upon us Europeans - that would be interesting.
