Zune priced at $249

According to Gizmodo, the final price of the 30GB Zune would be $229.99. The information was reported by a Microsoft insider that said they were going to go for $289.99 to undercut the iPod by $10, but since Apple dropped to $249, Microsoft had to lower price as well.

Zune a closed ecosystem

Microsoft need to open the ecosystem if they want the Zune to be a success. Are they going to do that? I guess not until they have really bad sales numbers. So, we will have to wait a least 12 to 18 months before we can see a more open plateform.

The Zune is not even compatible to their Playforsure system. How can we expect that they will open the Zune ecosystem to Napster 2.0 or Rhapsody?

On the other end, Microsoft really need to jump in the band wagon of MP3 players because it is beginning to take a lot of place in our entertainement life. If users put enough pressure on Microsoft, they will eventually open the system a lot more than Apple.

Video of a Microsoft Zune Party

Personnally, I like the part were we see the Zune looking for other Zune devices. I already imagine the scenario at a Starbuck were you spot other Zune owners and send them your favorite song without them even asking!
