It took me by surprise. I had heard reports from multiple sources that it would be 9pm tonight.

But the King 5 report makes it sound like they attended an announcement with Bill Gates.

Sounds all legit to me, I just wonder why only black on the 80GB hard drive model?  I'm sure other colors will be released later...but still...and where's the brown?

3.2" is pretty big but I sure hope they up'd the resolution.

Hunh - yes it's been taken down.

The info was supposed to be embargoed until 9pm Pacific... so maybe they goofed when they ran early with the story.

Maybe later on, at this point it doesn't look like it based on information from various sources I have seen.

Disappointed in the pricing.
How does Microsoft expect to gain market share if they keep selling at the same prices as the equivalent iPods?
Thought they'd price it like the new Creative Zens at least, with the 4GB Zune's selling for $129.99.
Ah well.

Don't worry about prices...those will drop in no time.  The Zune 1 was going for $229 just a few months after launch.

The 160GB iPod is about the 8th selling iPod on Amazon. It's not exactly the most in demand configuration is it?
As for 16 GB flash, who makes em anyway? Apple is only selling 16GB flash in the iPod Touch, which sells for a rather   high $399.00. Apple  doesn't have Nano's in 16GB configuration.
