Which is it? Are there just too few Zune 80s made or are they more popular than we think? I dunno… Either way, Some entrepreneur is selling on Amazon at $399.99, just a tad above sticker price. (or a huge tad rather)

I am very optimistic about the future for Zune, but I don’t really think the Zune 80 is all that popular yet. Throw in some color choices and I think we can open the doors a bit. It’s still early for Microsoft in this game,so I am not expecting them to outsell anyone yet.

If you gotta have this $400 Zune, check out Amazon. Thanks Matt for the heads up.

    Zune 80 may not be popular enough to sell out as fast as it seems, but they are probably selling the best of all the zune devices. I count 3 zune 80’s at my school already…

    If they do sell any at that price it will be because somebody didn’t do their research .

    I just placed an order on Zune Originals this weekend and didn’t have any trouble with having it fulfilled. Somebody is always trying to make a buck. :)

    Maybe there aren’t a lot of zune 80s in stores because a lot of people are getting them. I know a lot of my friends have it and I’m getting mine in about a month or so. Seriously, who would buy a zune 80 for $399.99?

    It is both under produced and too popular. today my 80 broke and best buy said they dont have any more in and wont be getting any time soon. so they offered me something else and i took the red 8gb. which is really cool!

    The zune is getting more and more popular.
