Though not officially released for this country, you can now buy the Zune HD through a Canadian online retailer.
TigerDirect.ca is offering the Zune HD in the 16GB capacity for $219, which is odd because Microsoft has not spoken a single word about their plans to bring the Zune HD to this country since its launch in the U.S. last year.
There remains no mention of this model on the official Canadian Zune site.
So this could simply be an inventory glitch on Tiger’s site – they have been known to offer U.S.-only products to Canadians in the past, though generally their .ca site reflects the rest of the state of Canadian retail.
If you were dying to jump on the Zune HD bandwagon, it seems now is your chance, at least without the hassle of cross-border shopping – who knows how long this apparent glitch will remain? Though keep in mind, there is still no Zune Marketplace in Canada so you’ll have to buy your music on iTunes or another online retailer. You do buy your music don’t you? ;-)
Update Jan 13 1:31 PM ET: Looks like Tiger got wise to the glitch, as the item is now showing as unavailable.
