Six months ago when Microsoft first launched the Zune HD, many people questioned Microsoft’s decision not to include a 64GB model in its line-up, as it assumed (correctly) that the third generation iPod Touch would include such a feature. It seems now that Microsoft has finally decided to get around to adding this to its series of Zune HD products. Earlier today, Engadget got word that a link to the 64GB variation had been added to the Zune homepage but currently this link is not active meaning that Microsoft is not yet ready to release a public statement.

Currently the MSRPs for the 16GB and 32GB variations are $219 and $289 respectively, though Amazon.com has had both products listed for much lower prices. There is no set date for release or a baseline price.
